George Street book sale

Book sales

It wouldn't be Christian Aid Week without them.

Christian Aid Week means a lot of things in Scotland. And book sales is definitely one of them.
Since the first sale at St Andrew's and St George's West Church in 1974, Christian Aid Week in Scotland has become increasingly synonymous with book sales.
Saturday 12 May will see people queuing round the block once more in order to get a first look at the wares available on George Street in Edinburgh as soon as the doors open at the sale there at 10am.
And across the city at Morningside United Church, the Holy Corner book sale, which last year raised more than £15,000, will also open at 10am the same day.
And then, an hour later on Nicolson Square, the City of Edinburgh Methodist Church will open its second Christian Aid Week book sale too.
So, once again, bibliophiles in the capital will have three opportunities to re-stock their book shelves during Christian Aid Week.
Luckily, refreshments will be available to tired browsers on the opening day of all three sales, and throughout the week at George Street and Nicolson Square.
