Meanwhile, Nantwich’s Oxfam shop is staging a treasure hunt for a special summer read which kicks off the book month.

A signed copy by one of the country’s favourite authors is hidden among the shelves full of scorching summer reads.

There are current bestsellers, travel guides and children’s books on offer.

Funds from sales help Oxfam’s work to fight poverty around the world.

Val Richards, shop manager, said: “Come in and browse our huge and affordable range of books on a wide range of subjects.

“Our knowledgeable helpers can provide personal recommendations if needed, and you can buy a summer’s worth of reading very cheaply.”

A recent unusual donation to the Pepper Street shop has resulted in a module of hundreds of books on Politics (British, Russian, American and World).
