I have just gotten back from my day trip with my dad to Hay on Wye, a small town in the middle of Wales near Hereford, which is known for basically being about 80% bookshops. I shall put some pictures under the cut!
A Crime and Mystery/Thriller book shop called “Murder and Mayhem”- complete with body chalk outline in the road outside the shop. There is dedication for you- yes there were people lying in it for pictures and no, I was not one of them.
So many of the bookshops had beautiful walls to display certain books in.
Hay Castle- with bookshops and vintage shops on the grounds, sadly the vintage shops are closing down.

Of course we had to go to the fudge shop before we came home! Om nom nom!
Swiggity Swag, what’s in the bag!! FYI the bag says “I love Hay on Wye” and the pencil reads “the official writing instrument of the independent Kingdom of Hay on Wye” and it has a little jeweled crown on the top!
I’m really excited for “Shirley” as I want to read another of Charlotte Bronte’s works and I’ve heard great things about the Eyre Affair. I have already read and enjoyed Something Wicked this way comes but only on my kindle, I wanted it for my Ray Bradbury Collection!
My dad insisted I get those Snoopy post it notes because the box says “Happiness is a warm puppy” on the side- which is so true. Plus it’s Snoopy.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
