Don’t leave these books homeless! Which do you want?

**UPDATE** Thank you to everyone who got in touch – all the books which they requested have been put aside and will be posted out as soon as possible, and everything else has now gone to a good home, including Birmingham Library!

As Rob told you earlier, we’re off on the next stage of our adventure to London but that means we’re having to downsize our book collections.

I’ve had a close look at my shelves and been surprised by just how many books I have multiple copies of, which I’d love to go to a good home – you guys! If space permitted, or if I just had one copy in the first place, of course I’d hoard books like a dragon hoards gold but needs must, so Rob has helped me by typing up the following list as I took each book off the shelf.
