Located in the grounds of Hay Castle, Wales is the Honesty Bookshop, a 24-hour open air bookshop where people select books and post the money for them through a small letterbox (see pictures below). My first fear was (still is) the book’s exposure to the elements but I’m hoping that they are snapped up so fast that they’re not too affected by rain etc. I showed my wife this picture. ‘There’s no way you’re going there!’ she said. She knows I’d try to ‘rescue’ everything )
The Honesty Bookshop is just a small taster of the bookish goodness that Hay-on-Wye offers. It may a small village but it houses no less than 38 individual bookshops, which in my eyes is a little piece of heaven on earth.
Anyway here are a few more Flickr shots of the Honesty Bookshop (click on any of them to go to the larger versions):
