. . . Collectors and Hoarders of Old-fashioned Children's Stories


Four of us travelled from the Wellington & Manawatu areas to Auckland by train in January 2005; two travelled by car. Thirty-four books were read by the travellers over the long weekend away, and $1000 spent on books. Needless to say a great time was had by all!
