Monday, 1st August - Oxfam
(It's still Sunday really, but this counts for Monday!). MrM and I took the French exchance student that's staying with us to Avebury and onto Marlborough. Typically French and a teenager, he didn't seem that impressed, but it did give me the chance to check out the Oxfam shop where I bought two books on the history of Newbury, one written by a lady whose obituary I remember writing in the first week that I worked at the local paper.
Proving that it's just our local store which has problems, the Marlborough store is a dedicated book store. It's a delight to browse and the woman behind the counter was lovely.
