The background sells it, Mick.
I also like your 'arty' Little Free …, bit.

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.

Vandals target....best to keep the location a secret. I have never seen one before, who is responsible for the site and upkeep.

My neck's killing me! … Knit Two, by Kate Jacobs.

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

Should be called, 'Little TREE Library'.
Nice idea, but as the girls say, let's hope it stays in one piece.

Very broad-minded, Wiganers!
I can see Lady Chatterley's Lover and Kama Sutra in there ;-)

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.

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....

There are some old phone boxes in Yorkshire set up as push bike puncture repairs booths.

The Shevy idiot is at it again...boring.

What a wonderful thing to do

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 ?!

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
'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!

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!

Glad to see you back Mick. You were sorely missed.
