This Saturday (7 October 2023) sees another Phoenix Association second-hand book sale take place, this time in Bergerac. There are literally 1000s of second-hand books up for grabs, all in excellent condition. I’ve been to one of these book fairs before and came home with so many books that I probably shouldn’t have bought but couldn’t resist. See below for Phoenix’s press release.

The Phoenix Association takes in unwanted dogs and at-risk puppies and kittens and places them with foster families who lovingly care for them ready for adoption. Phoenix works with maximum care and attention with a small number of animals at a time.

The book sale is also a great opportunity to meet up with friends and make new ones over a cup of tea and cake. Please support this really fantastic cause to help our little furry friends.
