Book Mad in Banbury

Phonebox1

Banbury PhoneBox Library – a Little Free Library of sorts which started out unofficially and ended up being done up properly and making the news.

I’ve been book mad a long time, long before I moved to Banbury. When we were house hunting, one of my criteria (and I didn’t have many) was that where ever we ended up, it have a bookstore.

After all, I was moving from Manhattan – land of The Strand (and especially their Central Park Stalls), Housing Works Bookstore, McNally Jackson, – not to mention Mysterious Bookshop, the late lamented Murder Ink and the even more lamented Endicott. I couldn’t go cold turkey.

We ended up in Banbury for a number of really excellent reasons – and while it was not the deciding factor, I am happy to report than Banbury is awash in places for me to feed my book habit.
