Recreation Books

The 312 books in this section are all the remaining ones that don't really fit into any of the other categories. It is subdivided into five parts: Annuals, Books with Mixed Contents, Omnibus Editions, Painting and Novelty Books, and finally TV and Film Books.

ANNUALS
The annuals also have very varied contents, short stories, poems and non-fiction. The Daily Mail Annual is included as a one-off annual as it was the only one to be edited by Enid Blyton. There are a number of others to which she also contributed stories, but they are not included here.
