In this blog I hope to share the delights of being an Oxfam Volunteer in the Wilmslow shop. As my role involves the sorting and pricing of books much of my pleasure comes from the excitement of seeing what has been donated and matching one generous person’s donation with a customer’s interest. Recycling at its best.
On these pages I will present some of the donations that appeal to me personally and try and explain why I have chosen them. For the whole of 2012, I’m intending to post everyday that the shop is open, so nothing on Sundays or bank holidays. Apart from that (and my holidays) it will be a Book-A-Day-Blog. After the first year, my plans may change. I am not employed by Oxfam and the views will be my own.
I will try to update the posts and note if any of the items have been sold. Anyone wanting to have a closer look at any of the books will find them (if they are still in the shop) between 9.30 and 5.00 at
