Menokakkuls... Me-Now-Views Northumbrian Special

Here are the shots from Barter Books, mentioned on Monday's post.

There are so many nooks and hide-aways in the place, as well as central seating and gathering areas.

Dogs are actively welcomed! You will see a piccie below of Meg, the cockeroodle (her lady said 'cockerpoo' was not the right description for her darling - and I agreed!) There is even one side hall - the original ladies waiting room - where light refreshments can be taken and dogs may also enter. They are only not permitted in the actual bistro part. Fair enough.

In the outer hall, there is a model railway running several 'services' above the bookshelves.  What a great place!!!

...did I mention the Fudge took 180+ images?...

Don't panic. I'll cull them... &*>
