Books looking for a good home!

The books/etc., listed below were collected over a lifetime of meteorology and well read and well used! Many have been scribbled in and otherwise annotated.

It won’t be too long before I won’t have space to store them … and frankly I don’t have an ‘operational’ use for them. My son won’t have a clue what to do with them and I suspect they’d end up in a skip!

These titles are free to a good home …. on a first come, first served basis – email me (westmoorsweather@googlemail.com) to express an interest.

[ Don’t forget to ‘refresh’ the page (CTRL-R) to make sure you’ve got the latest listing. ]
