What books would you like to find in a holiday cottage?

I’ve decided that our bookshelves need attention. The smart old hardbacks on the top shelf came from the library of our aunt, who bought Tegfan fifty years ago. Many of the other books have been left by visitors; some of these books may still be of interest – others not.

Tootles the TaxiThe children’s books are an accumulation  that some our children have grown out of and have donated as holiday reads to others. Many of these books are shabby now, but maybe family members have their favourites. There’s a battered copy of “Tootles the Taxi”, of which I am very fond. Are there any children’s books  that you would particularly like to find when you arrive for your Dinas holiday?

There is room for improvement.

Have a look at the shelves. Click on the pictures to have a good look at the titles on the spines. I’d like your comments. As an Oxfam book volunteer I’ll be able to follow up your suggestions relatively inexpensively and make a contribution to a good cause at the same time.

I have already made a start and bought this book for Tegfan. I have left it on the shelves.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
