Books drought.

Avid bookworms have all but cleared the shelves at a chain of North charity shops.

Children's charity Barnardo's says it is at a loss to explain why the books from its 16 shops in the region have been snapped up but is now facing a drought.

One theory has been an explosion in interest surrounding classic literature after the BBC announced the results of its Big Read last December. If you can help with book donations should call Barnardo's on (0191) 240 4800.
