Most charity shops have a regime of checking their deliveries before they are put out onto the shelves. It would be criminal to sell an item with ripped pages or a crumbling spine. And of course a secondhand book is a magical pastime for children, get them in there early and it will become second nature when they venture out on their own.

The books in charity shops are a fraction of a price and you’ll be donating to a good cause. Cookery books, novels, picture books and kid’s books are usually always in excellent condition.

And you never know – if you’re really lucky you could find an unclaimed lottery ticket (yeah, right!) a love letter in the pages (saucy!), or a note from the previous reader (sweet!).
