Free Books

"People in Bristol have been invited to help themselves to free books at a warehouse which were left behind when the owners left the site. Bookbarn's lease on the premises in Arnos Vale recently expired and when the firm moved out it left behind thousands of books.

Managers of the Paintworks site have invited people to help themselves."

Absolutely heartbreaking. And I am so jealous. I am hoping that people are going and pulling out any children's books for their local schools, and something for our local libraries. Rotting books are an absolute tragedy.
