Book Sale in Howth, Dublin

I went to visit the beautful Howth coastline in Dublin last Sunday. Aside from the busking East Europeans blaring old Broadway numbers from their trumpets, the tranquil bay with its delightful sightings of boats, yachts and seagulls also offers a rich spill of coffees, burgers, crisps, sandwiches and a congenial environment where toddlers and happy dogs may feel they've gatecrashed a party tailored to their let-have-a runaround-without-a-care-in-the-world tastes. And so too, they may be right.
If you're a booklover, you may want to bypass the pubs, seafood markets and quaint craft shops in favour of an old church easily visible from the long stretch of grass for an unexpected exhibition of all kinds of literature to capture your fancy. Hundreds of second-hand books are on sale and going for a steal. Poetry, the classics, Irish literature and various paperback fiction meet and greet the reader with expectation in a big hall.
The quiet studious lady who manages the book sale has her collection up for grabs every weekend from mid-mornings into the late evenings.
