Hi all, it's rare I post here now as Rehome-a-book isn't so busy with events these days (we have an outlet at 'Serendipity Llanandras' in Presteigne though where there are many, many books waiting to be re-homed!) but today seems worthy of a post.
On this day, November 4th in 1918, poet Wilfred Owen was killed in action during WW1 on the Western Front, just one week before armistice was declared. He was shot by a German machine-gun during the attempt by the British to bridge the Sambre Canal near Ors.
His war poems which are a lasting reminder of the futility of war have led to him becoming on of the greatest English poets of the 20th century and beyond.

Well, it is the great Festival at the Edge at Much Wenlock this weekend coming, but what can we expect from the weather this year? I have heard all kinds of reports from 'not too bad' to thunder and lightening (great in a tent)...so I guess its a case of wait and see! Whatever the weather it is a brilliant event, photos and report to come soon!

Hi all, just a little post to tell you about my new blog Dark Legends and Moonlit Myths. I have always had a fascination with folklore and legend, this is the ideal outlet for sharing stories and articles of interest! Do have a look and follow it if you would like to!

We have lots of great hardbacks to take to Festival at the Edge - but they weigh so much! Hopefully they will sell, all will be 50p and need re-homing (so we don't have to lug them back again :)).

Hello folks, its that time of year again, Autumn is here, its dark earlier, colder, and Christmas is looming! We will once again be trading at the wonderful Ludlow Medieval Christmas Fayre next weekend ( 23rd and 24th November) in full costume with lots of lovely gift items and many books that need re-homing! We have both hardbacks at £1 each and paperbacks at just 50p plus a few books that are a bit past their best at 20p each! Come and say hello and grab a bargain.
