of books is very high and the prices are astonishingly affordable. There is a
wide variety of bargains to be found, from second-hand paperbacks to review
copies of recently published novels.”

£300,000 across the years. The events are so popular that there is always a
queue of people waiting to get in when the doors open with some of them
travelling many miles to attend.

books as well as to sign petitions for the group's campaigns.

justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.
