Definitely moving forward!

Now it looks a bit orderly - I assume (and hope) that the progress will be finished soon.
Bill Phillips: We are in the home straight Philine

Order restored, or at least getting there, Bill
Bill Phillips: Like British Rail used to say. We are getting there

Nothing like a sense of achievement to spur one on.
Bill Phillips: Vigour is renewed

From the thumb I thought you had had a nose bleed
Bill Phillips: Don't be silly Richard
This looks promising.
Bill Phillips: I was feeling encouraged
Now this looks a bit tidier, Maureen had three trays of books like this in our garage which she used to take to the W.I.every month, they've all gone now. Are they sorted in any particular way or just 'bunged' in?
Bill Phillips: We have boxes of crime/thrillers and then the rest are alphabetical by author apart from mills and boon and classics. The non-fiction get sorted on the day into broad categories

If you say so Bill ....
Bill Phillips: I was beginning to think I was getting there Anne grin
Are you tempted to read during the tidy process?
Bill Phillips: Not really. However, when I am sorting non fiction it is tempting when an old copy of something like Colemanballs appears
Hope you manage to get rid of that lot at your next book sale, Bill!
Bill Phillips: We probably sell about 250 books each month so in total we probably sell about 10% of what we have and get as many if not more donated. So quite a lot get recycled especially Dan Brown's Da Vinci code grin

I wonder how times the same book/books go out to sale and return unsold? The space on the wall would be just right to hang up a bike.
Bill Phillips: Some quite a few times but because we got a lot of books given to us we are able to weed out a lot of duds. Doing it alphabetically means that certain letters we don't get a lot of books so they tend to go too and fro a bit.
You need to get out more Bill, and buy me a fry up.
Bill Phillips: This is vital work. Our book sale has raised over thirty grand in the last 10 years. A Fry up awaits when you finally get your ar*e into gear and come and sample the delights of Droitwich
if you sold digital books at your Lions Book Fair... you would be ab;e to get your car into the garage Billgrin

Bill Phillips: Go and wash your mouth out with soap grin Digital books! Never!
