Theres this lovely book store

Called 'Books For Free" and it does what it says on the tin. You can go in and have a little rifle around and come out with three free books. It is such a cute and lovely idea. 

But unfortunately the store is having to relocate as the landlord is basically kicking them out. It's such a shame because it was located right in the centre of Southampton and now there's gonna be no way near as much people visiting it. It is also affecting the volunteers as many of them live far away from the new location and are unable to travel so much. 

I have gone in to take a look around before and the volunteers are so friendly and unlike a lot of book stores they don't care about money they believe that everybody should be allowed the chance to read. It is so nice for people who are unable to afford books. I personally came out with a couple of books which I can't wait to start reading.

  2. Tess of the d'Urbervilles is such a classic. It's a shame that we don't have book shops like that here.

  6. That is such a lovely idea, its a shame it has to close though :/ I got that copy of Tess last summer in a charity shop, yours looks like its in much better condition though :)

  7. I love this idea, although books are available easily online - you just can't beat the look and feel of a second hand book! I've just given a lot of my old books to charity and this would be such a good place to get new ones
