The rest of the Hay-on-Wye photos

I've been to Hay-on-Wye a few times, the first time being for papersky's wedding. The first few times I visited, I came back laden with books. These days, not so much.

OK, I admit that "not so much" did amount to 6 books for a grand total of £20, but compared to what I used to come home with, it's not a lot. Why so little? Mostly it's a realisation that there's no point in adding to the To Read Pile, but switching to ebooks has really put me off buying novels from bookshops. I would much rather read a novel on the iPod than on paper these days. Also, of course, I no longer need to buy classics because I can download from Project Gutenberg. What I do still buy in paper format are non-fiction books and novels that not old enough to be copyright free but are unlikely to be available in ebook form.

Anyway, have a few more photos from the day out.
