Book Clearout: Grab Yourself A Bargain

Following on from Friday's post where I was on about spring cleaning my life, I have decided it's time to clear off my book shelf and only keep my absolute favourites or books on my TBR list. Hopefully this will eventually help free floor space ha ha! Yes I'm having my very first blog sale!

To keep things fair it's going to be on a first come first served basis. I'm not charging a lot, just enough to cover the cost of postage and packaging and maybe there'll be the odd twenty pence left over to go towards paying off my debts. (I wish!) I usually say UK only to anything like this but if you're from somewhere else and you're happy to pay the additional postage charge then feel free to put dibs on the book of your choice. Please see end of post for prices.

If you do see something you would like, please comment below with your email address and the name of the book you want. Alternatively you can drop me an email at

Happy perusing!

  1. Awww, I haven't seen a Jacqueline Wilson book for a while - she's still one of my favourite authors! I love Sophie Kinsella's books too, and if I had any more money on me I'd definitely buy a few from you! I hope that you do get some sales through soon! - Tasha
