Sixpence House by Paul Collins, 246 pages, read by Tracy, on 07/19/2012

There is a town in Wales called Hay-on-Wye that has forty bookstores. Paul Collins and his family visited it and decided to move there from San Francisco. Paul is an author and is writing a book called Banvard’s Folly.  This book, however,  is about their experiences at the “Town of Books”. He and his wife think it’s the perfect place to raise their son and search for a house to buy. Sixpence House was a pub at one time but is now for sale and falling apart. Anyone who loves books would want to live in Hay-on-Wye. Right? Is too much of a good thing bad? Maybe so.
