Whenever we go to Edinburgh up the A1 Alnwick is a convenient break to stretch the legs, there is no way that the call of the cakes and books at Barter Books influences our decision at all…

It is always a pleasure walking into Barter Books, the sounds and smells are so familiar it’s like a big hug. The model train chugging along above all the books, the smell of cakes and food wafting along, and that inimitable smell of old books.

There is such a collection but I always go straight to the SFF (science fiction and fantasy) section to see if they have any books of the series I’m after in the editions I’m after and I’m usually not disappointed.

Then after successfully purchasing another book it’s coffee and cake before we set off once more.

If you want to help and support this blog and my other projects (Indie Publishers and Big Bearded Bookseller) you could become a Patreon which would help pay for my hosting, domain names, streaming services, and the occasional bag of popcorn to eat while watching films.

If you can’t support with a monthly subscription a tip at my Ko-Fi is always appreciated, as is buying things from my Ko-Fi Shop.

You can always email me on contact@bigbeardedbookseller.com with any suggestions.
