Book book selection will have changed because this photo was take a few weeks ago


Comment by Philip G. on 22nd January 2020 at 07:27
The background sells it, Mick.
I also like your 'arty' Little Free , bit.


Comment by Bradshaws Girl on 22nd January 2020 at 07:56
Love this idea. Have seen these in different European cities.Lets hope it doesn't get vandalized.


Comment by Veronica on 22nd January 2020 at 08:05
What a brilliant idea! Hope it doesn't get vandalised. The street looks very nice, I like the house on the corner.


Comment by Anne on 22nd January 2020 at 08:42
Vandals target....best to keep the location a secret. I have never seen one before, who is responsible for the site and upkeep.


Comment by Philip G. on 22nd January 2020 at 09:37
My neck's killing me! Knit Two, by Kate Jacobs.


Comment by Mick on 22nd January 2020 at 10:25
I wont be giving away its exact location, Ill only say its in a G, H, of Wigans council tax band, and its far enough away from those who are living in the A bands, so it should be safe


Comment by Roy on 22nd January 2020 at 11:09
Should be called, 'Little TREE Library'.
Nice idea, but as the girls say, let's hope it stays in one piece.


Comment by Johnny on 22nd January 2020 at 11:36
Very broad-minded, Wiganers!
I can see Lady Chatterley's Lover and Kama Sutra in there ;-)


Comment by Brendell on 22nd January 2020 at 12:29
Love this idea. In the Norfolk village where I live the Parish Council purchased an old red phone box that BT were decommissioning for £1. This has been turned into a free library and is very successful.


Comment by Poet on 22nd January 2020 at 12:44
Have they got Carpet Fitting by Walter Wall?


Comment by irene roberts on 22nd January 2020 at 12:57
What a lovely idea. I wish they'd bring the mobile libraries back. There was something special about them.


Comment by Veronica on 22nd January 2020 at 13:45
It would be terribly exciting if I could find a copy of "Fly Fishing" by JR Hartley....


Comment by Mick on 22nd January 2020 at 13:50
There are some old phone boxes in Yorkshire set up as push bike puncture repairs booths.


Comment by Maureen on 22nd January 2020 at 15:23
The Shevy idiot is at it again...boring.


Comment by Beryl on 22nd January 2020 at 15:24
What a wonderful thing to do


Comment by Helen of Troy on 22nd January 2020 at 16:06
I must have pressed the wrong button
So here goes again.

Brendell I live in Norfolk too & was going to comment about a red Phone box library we pass quite often on our way to Norwich, its in a village near Taverham. I wonder if we are talking about the same telephone box ?!


Comment by Cyril on 22nd January 2020 at 17:16
Oranges and Lemons. ;¬)


Comment by Roy on 22nd January 2020 at 17:44
Poet, have you seen Walter Wall Carpets in Bolton I wonder? That's where one exists.


Comment by Poet on 22nd January 2020 at 18:06
I had no idea Roy. I was just quoting an old joke.


Comment by Fred Mason on 22nd January 2020 at 18:07
Veronica...Try Abe Books.

Comment by peebee on 22nd January 2020 at 18:50
'Constructing the Titanic' now there's a riveting read!.


Comment by Veronica on 22nd January 2020 at 19:55
''pon my word Fred, I will most certainly try....
One has always wished to fish with a fly!


Comment by Philip G. on 22nd January 2020 at 20:41
Veronica, Norman Lumsden - the chap who'd played the role of angler and author JR Hartley in the TV ad - had been a favourite of Benjamin Britten and had sung in over 200 performances - he was a 'bass'.


Comment by Veronica on 22nd January 2020 at 22:02
You wouldn't have thought so to look at him Philip... Extraordinary, after all that he came down to doing adverts - he must have been a bit short of money! Mind you Clooney gets well paid for the coffee ads!


Comment by Broady on 25th January 2020 at 21:14
Glad to see you back Mick. You were sorely missed.
