Co-worker Kim Bryant shared these photos of her recent trip
to Hay-on-Wye, Wales, aka “The Town of Books”. According to Kim, there are so many bookstores in Hay-on-Wye that “you can literally stand
in the doorway of one and see nothing but more everywhere you look. … And yet,
we were told by the Tourist Info Centre that there are fewer bookstores than
there used to be.”
2009 his relationship with the town’s booksellers had soured to the point of symbolic regicide. That’s the year Booth’s unhappy subjects beheaded an effigy of their king and declared that the (self-proclaimed) independent kingdom of Hay was now
an independent commonwealth.
Sounds like the makings of a good book. Anyone here down to write it?
Hi! I was wondering what edition of Fellowship you were reading in the breakfast picture on 14th September. :)
Feast your eyes on this beau ideal of 1970s jacket design. I found this in one of the 19 bookshops in Hay-on-Wye and was informed by the owner that it is the first single-volume edition of LOTR ever published in the UK. It is full of typos and missing punctuation but I only paid eight dollars for it and you know what? It’s my favorite edition of LOTR I have now, because it has a lot of personality and also it’s just laced with nostalgia because I can’t pick it up without flashing back to my wonderful post-dissertation solo vacation in Wales, where all I did was tromp around the countryside, read LOTR, listen to Led Zeppelin, drink beer, and maybe fall in a river (once).
