Book Sale continues… Wow, what a sale weekend we had – so many books (and bags and mugs and pencil cases and...) found new happy homes.

The books left behind were a bit grumpy though. To give them a chance of finding new homes we continue with a GREEN DOT TREASURE HUNT!

3 for 2 on selected books in the shops (all with a green dot on their spines). Find 3 books with green dots, pay for 2.
Let the dot hunt begin!
