Free books at the Book Barn
Hands off! Some of those are mine. I took boxes full of books in there for them to sell over the years, some not long before it closed. I'm quite annoyed about this. =[
Books' free-for-all in warehouse
People have been invited to help themselves to the books
People in Bristol have been invited to help themselves to free books at a warehouse which were left behind when the owners left the site.
Bookbarn's lease on the premises in Arnos Vale recently expired and when the firm moved out it left behind thousands of books.
Managers of the Paintworks site have invited people to help themselves.
This Bookbarn is in no way connected to the company BookBarn International at Hallatrow in North Somerset.
In no way connected? Except that they were sister stores running on the same account so money you earned in one store could be spent in the other. So I feel like they've given away some of my books. So I went down there on Friday and took goods of equivalent value. Felt better after that.
I also bumped into some squatters I know in there, busty loading book cases into a van. Apparently their fifth day on the job! And I got a gig out of it. I'll be playing another Occasional Cinema film night in Stokes Croft on April Fools Day.
