'why second-hand bookshops are just my type' - theodore dalrymple, 2012 [telegraph culture article; 'as bookshops are displaced by the internet, the author of a new work on serendipity describes the joys of delving in dusty shelves']
Barter Books in Alnwick, Northumberland. One of the biggest second-hand book shops in Britain! Free tea and coffee next to a roaring fire plus a cafe further inside that serves food. Yum. Used to be an old railway station. One of my favouritest places to browse for old books :)
WILD & HOMELESS BOOKS, Bookstore, South St, Bridport, W Dorset, ENGLAND ... ... “SECOND HAND BOOKS are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.” - Virginia Wolf.

Book and knitting of the week plus some little planning for my little trip to London this week. I will be there just a couple of days, a super little break before super busy weeks. I will go for sure to @looplondonloves for some yarn shopping, a couple of second hand bookstores and to the theater. Today and tomorrow are still for work, but Tuesday and Wednesday are for London. . . . #onmyneedles #bookoftheweek #littletraveljournal
