Very early on in our trip we drove through Bunessan on the Isle of Mull and at the back of a charity shop we saw the sign
I love it - a 24 hour bookshops in a village of a few hundred folk, where the honesty system works perfectly according to the woman in the charity shop. Fancy finishing a book at night, then popping down the road to exchange it or buy another one for a pound, brilliant.
Simple, sensible instructions seem to make to work.
Back in Edinburgh there are grander libraries of course, and we visited the Scottish Poetry Library, fell in love with many books of poetry and found a couple more book sculptures.
Whilst we were in Wales, we drove through the village of Trecastle and stopped because it had a sign "Kingdom of Rust" so what choice did we have? On our way to visit said Kingdom, we came upon this excellent re-use of a telephone box. Not the Tardis, but close!
And in Cardiff, their Central Library is a fabulous bold building rising high above the city centre, allowing us to know where we were by keeping a lookout for it. It also had great sculpture in the forecourt.
