In an effort to avoid motorway stops I'm trying to find stops just away from the main drag. Obviously there's an added benefit if there are a few books for sale. Even more of a benefit if there are a million or so. At £1 each. With cakes. And good coffee. Book Barn fulfills all of this and is a veritable warren of bookshelves.
It means that bookbuying is done in stages with frequent coffee stops.
Definitely adds a little time to the journey but even with multiple purchases it cost less than the motorway and no rush, bustle, no dried up food.
