DOUG\'S BOOKS...NOVEMBER 2016..SOME MORE BOOKS FOR YOUR HOLIDAY READING !

Photo of Doug Nicholson
Good Day to You All,

Yes, I am now back again and still battling to make up for the time lost by my enforced absence. Life must and will go on, thanks to the wonderful support from my family and all my book friends !
Whilst in the UK I worked very hard to restore both my physical and mental strength and what better way to do this than to seek out suitable books for my loyal customers in South Africa. One of the most interesting and perhaps unusual ways to do this was to visit as many second hand and charity shops which are to be found in the main streets of local towns. I walked the length and breadth of many such towns and surprisingly the better the quality of the area the more charity shops are to be found. Anywhere between 4 and 7 such shops, all with excellent causes, such as Save the Children Fund, Oxfam, Cancer Research, Homes for the Aged and so on. It was great to be able to find many suitable books at reasonable prices and at the same time invest in so many charitable causes.
Whilst there were fewer book shops some were very good indeed and I am going to give you one, which, if you are in England, and are a bookacholic like me, you must try and visit "The Cottage Bookshop" in a lovely Buckinghamshire village called Penn. Apparently it is quite famous and has appeared in a number of films. I could have spent days there! Terrific range of second hand books, in excellent condition and at very good prices.
The other notable discovery was the sheer number of South Africans to be found both in London and nearby. Many, like my daughter are returning home. Great country, lots of opportunity, very expensive and that weather !
However I intend to return again next year and yes I shall be returning again to Penn ! See you there !
My list of new books is long but as this is an important time of year for books for the holidays and for the collectors. I am glad to say that they are all now on my site www.dougfindsbooks.com you can order them either directly or through Bid or Buy. By all means e mail me on colnic@telkomsa.net and I can then reserve the book or books you require.
