Have a wonderful timeThose four lines could be the opening of a songHelen
Thank you! Maybe they could be a song of books...
Have a fantastic time and don't hurt yourself when you are carrying all of those books home! :)
Thank goodness for a car! I have carried enormous quantities of books home from Edinburgh (train) and London (coach) before, and it doesn't bear considering...
Have a good time!
I did! :)
What great fun! Happy hunting, Simon! Do share your bounty once you get back. :)
But of course! All up now ;)
Can't wait for the report. We are all jealous over here, but we won't hold it against you as long as you share pictures of your loot. :)
I'm a very democratic book buyer - I tell everyone! It was such a fun day.
Have a fabulous time! I can't wait to see what you come back with.
And now you have :) It was wonderful, the most fun I've had for ages.
Wrap up well, it's bloody coldwork being a bookhunter, but be bold,for in Hay there are many nooksTo find lots of new, old books.
The only thing, my sole complaint,The one small point which was not pleasing:I cannot lie, it wasn't warm,In point of fact, 'twas &*£!?*@ freezing!
"Au revoir, mon ami!" said the blogger from Canada.
Merci! And I came back with Canada's finest (in my eyes) - Stephen Leacock.
Good thing this isn't your 24 books year.
I didn't dare go during Project 24! I did go shortly before and after it, though...
One of my dreams is to visit that book laden city. Through sheer chance I recently bought a book on-line and it turned out to have come from one of the many shops in Hay-on Wye. With my book I got a map of the city showing me the location of all the bookshops!
One day you must! Although there are slightly fewer bookshops every time - I do hope they manage to keep going. Those maps accumulate in my house everytime - I should send them out as souvenirs to would-be visitors like yourself!
Can I come?
Aww, too late! Next time ;)
Wonderful!! Have fun :-)
Thanks Willa :) It was the best!

Gosh, they are stunning, aren't they? I want to visit them all! Especially the one in Portugal.
