Book bargain

The campsite I am on has a little library.  £1.00 to keep, 50p to swap.



I found an absolute bargain in pristine condition, definitely worth donating more than a pound 😃



It will come in very useful at home when I am crawling around in our Pollinator Meadow!

    What a bargain! I love bookshops whether second hand or new - so much to be tempted by...

    Best wishes

    1. Thanks Ellie. You'd like something I regularly see on Pinterest: "you know you're a book geek when you STILL get upset thinking about the Library of Alexandria" . . .

  2. I have that book - it is lovely and such a bargain too, made better by the location :)

  3. What a bargain, and what a great idea having a little library on the campsite. I hope you've had glorious weather today as we've had here, I think you've chosen a brilliant week for your jaunt.

    1. Thanks Jo. One thing it did not occur to me to pack was sunscreen! Poor Management is on "opening and closing the greenhouse" duties.

  4. I always love the little book swap libraries on campsites. Some of the reading material can be questionable but you got a good deal there. X

    1. Hi Jules. I've never looked at these little libraries before, but I certainly will in future. There is a small pile of gardening titles in the middle (next to the signs). I think someone must have brought them here deliberately.

    1. Thanks Eunice, it will be very useful identifying all the plants in my not-a-perfectly-cut-lawn!

  6. Looks a lovely book & the artists who can sketch the flowers are just so talented. I picked up 2 books at the Premier Inn in Whitehaven (very cheap) last trip & the money is donated to Prince Harry's Trust for soldiers. Not sure what it is actually called, but they were in great nick. Enjoy the trip & hope to see snaps of gardens & birds soon.
    Take care & huggles.

    1. Thanks Susan. This one is illustrated with photos which I preferfor identification to botanical drawings. It never ceases to surprise me what can be picked up when you are not expecting it.

    1. Me too Sue, all of which (I think) have come from second hand shops. That's why I pounced on this as soon as I saw it!

  8. A campsite with a library is my idea of heaven! Are you going to tell us where you are or saving that until you get home? I'm glad you made the decision and have gone jaunting in this wonderful weather. x

    1. I'm going to pop back into the library this morning and check I did not miss any other little gems!
      No secret to my location - back on Mull of Galloway.
