If you're a book lover and you've never been to Hay you really must go. Sad that for me the festival is over for another year but had a lovely few days reading and hearing about books in a beautiful setting.

I bought this lovely old copy of Undine when In Hay-on-Wye. I absolutely love it, it has so many lovely illustrations in it that I‘m sure I‘ll bombard you with at some point. #hayonwye #undine

My little book haul from addymanbooks. It was my favourite store in #hayonwye and an absolute must visit. The lovely owner Anne has an Instagram under the shops name that‘s amazing and when I visited she even gifted me this lovely canvas bag from her store! 💖💖💖

Me and my husband are on a short break away for our anniversary and the dogs birthday, couldn‘t resist a trip to Hay-on-Wye to visit all the book shops. I‘ve fallen in love with this book town so I‘ll be spamming you with the pics for a few weeks, but I‘ll space them out a bit I promise 😂👍🏻 #hayonwye #wales #booktown

Back from a holiday taking in #hayonwye home of books and the literary festival. Definitely bought too many books #TheStruggleIsReal

🙌🏼 This took so long to ship from the U.K... I kind of forgot I ordered it. I was especially pleased with the shop it came from! It is a bookshop on my bucket list. 📝

Jess_Read_This @elliemcc11 Ellie! Do you live near the bookshop? Or have you gone there? 2y
elliemcc11 Not this bookshop sadly @Jess_Read_This 😏 I've been to Hay once but not during the literature festival. It's about 100+ miles from us. Happy to find you anything from other places though 😊 2y
elliemcc11 I may well have been to the actual bookshop. Was a while ago I went to Hay so I wouldn't remember exactly 2y

LeahBergen @Jess_Read_This @elkeo Do you think we would even speak to one another? Or just nod in passing as we darted in and out of the bookshops? 😂😂 2y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @LeahBergen Good point. No time for chitchat 😆 2y
Jess_Read_This @elkeo @LeahBergen Oh, for sure a nod and a polite wave. If I hear a gasp behind a bookshelf, I'll know to snoop over your way as you found something good!!! 🤣 2y

The three books I picked up in Hay (also got a signed copy of A Woman's Work for my Mum). Saw Nadya1and Philippe speak so both copies were signed and they were both engaging and inspirational. The Bryson I've wanted to read for a while and picked up in a second hand bookshop. All in all I think I've been quite reserved in only buying three! #hay #hayonwye #wales #hayliteraturefestival #billbryson
