Sarah Ban Breathnach in her book Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy suggests by starting your search for a choice second-hand book shop in August you can help bring more harmony to your everyday life.
Where I live there are lots of charity second-hand stores but only one second-hand bookstore. Its great for finding surprise treasures that you never knew existed and for just enjoying the sheer pleasure of browsing.
When I’m on a mission and am after something specific I head online, while many peoples first port of call would always be Amazon, I find the shipping far too expensive to my home so greatly prefer Fishpond as my go-to online second-hand book Store.
I am always on the hunt for new sources, so please feel free to share your favourites in the comments.
