Books for Beanstalk!

As part of my personal challenge to not buy any more books this year, I'm selling the ones I've read to raise money for children's literacy charity Beanstalk. The books are all second hand - if they're in particularly good or bad condition I'll say - and all in fine readable condition. They are 50p per book plus postage which in the UK is £2.80 for up to three books, so really if you want one it pays to get three! Alternatively if you'd like to buy all the books (!!) you can pay £6.20 postage for a box weighing up to 5kg. If you're international I'm still happy to send, please get in touch via the comments here, by email ( or twitter (@fairybookgirl) and I'll work out what postage is for you!

For the most part they are books I've really enjoyed so feel free to ask about them - I'll do my best to point you in the right direction!

To buy a book or three just comment here with what you'd like or email me on the above email. Payment will be via PayPal or alternatively you can donate the money for the books straight to my JustGiving page and just PayPal me the postage money, totally up to you.

Find out more about the charity here and make sure you keep checking back throughout the year as I add increasingly more books to this page! Books are listed alphabetically by author and titles link to synopsis on Hive or IndieBound. (all links are affiliate so if you decide to buy from there rather than here I will get a small percentage and be very grateful!).
