The Lengths Booklovers Will Go To...

So, we took our trip to Hay-On-Wye yesterday. Bertie, the satnav on my phone said it would take just under 3 hours but Bertie was lying to me. Naughty Bertie! After getting stuck behind a combine harvester it took us more than four! But we arrived and it was all it promised to be.

 

Here are some photos as promised - excuse the smudgy lens, I'm not used to rain anymore. Not that you could really call it rain!

 

The backdrop of the Brecon Beacons - gorgeous countryside.

 

 

This shop was amazing. The cellar was full of second hand sci-fi and some other fiction. There were some real old sci-fi books for die-hard fans. There were lots of original editions of Astounding stories and the like.

 

Do you ever get the feeling that this shop sells books?

 

This guy had a large back passage full of books, too! (His words, not mine).

 

My favourite sign.

 

The castle.

 

Here's the moment you have all been waiting for...

the books! I really could have bought more. I will save up my pennies and go again next year.
