Book-lovers saddened by the demise of the Morston book sale may want to switch their allegiance to another book sale in the county.
The annual three-day Morston book sale in north Norfok ended after 10 years in May.
But hundreds of their books have now ended up with the Grand Second Hand Book sales in Thompson, near Watton.
Thompson spokesman Keith Mace said: "Our book sales were started only about three years ago in Griston parish church.
"It worked very well and we started doing three sales each year, but quickly outgrew the church.
You may also want to watch:
"Thompson had opened a new community hall, so we ran with it and now the Grand Second Hand Book Sales are almost an institution.
"It transpired that our sales and those at Morston had a mutual admirer, who gave our details to them, and we now have over 100 boxes of their books."
