Barrister’s book chamber – 50,000 books and counting

​The Barrister's chamber in Retford has 50,000 books and counting.

They go from floor to ceiling in several good sized rooms and 3 floors of an old building opposite St Swithun's church in East Retford, Nottinghamshire.
Why do people read books and go to old and second hand book stores?
