The Lending Library

I love books. I don’t really like Kindles or the way Amazon treat their staff, so I have stuck with buying (and asking for as gifts) real books from real bookshops or online stores like Better World Books. But that means I have a lot of books – and a lot of really good books about sustainability and the environment. So I want to share them with others who would appreciate them. So if you would like to borrow one of these books, please just drop me a line and I will arrange to post it to you or better still meet you for a cup of coffee and a chat about the book when I hand it over to you! No borrowing fees or set borrowing time, just borrow, enjoy and pass back when you’re done.
