Recently rescued from a skip, and in jolly good nick considering, a book entitled 'Converting Junk', by Fiona Windrum, published in 1974. It's a hard cover, but a little book, with 217 pages. Still in the original dust jacket, no sign of any damage.

Basically it's a book about buying junk (say, a horrid old wardrobe) and converting it into good useful stuff (say, kitchen benches). Nice ideas for improvising sewing stations, plant pots, all sorts of stuff. Interesting, but I'll never use it.

Offer me something interesting for it.

Does no one really want this book?

Don't make me work out how to sell on Ebay, guys

What can we offer though?

A book on home electrics, loads of very dated programming manuals , do you accept children?

Children, eh? Depends on whether they were raised ethically, I'm particular about livestock.

It's impossible to raise children ethically. You have to confine them in the cellar every now and then, dont you?

We haven't got a basement, we usually chain them to the ceiling

You keep them in the house? Isn't that unhygienic?

Yes, I like the idea of an outside pen with straw. Don't give 'em too much room or they'll need more food.
