Popular past time for adults: Colouring in
THE shelf at Higgins Newsagents in Casino is straining under the weight of adult colouring books.
With more than 50 different titles, owner Roslyn Ward said they can't enough of them.
"A psychologist was sending people to the newsagent to buy them," Ms Ward said.
"That's what the customers told us."
The adult colouring books are so popular Casino Library is starting a monthly session on the third Tuesday of each month where people come together and colour in.
There is a vast selection of books to choose from.
The most popular colouring book at Higgins Newsagent is the Better Homes colouring book and "anything with flowers," Ms Ward said.
While it is mainly women who purchase the books, there is a colouring book aimed at men called Auto Art and features black and white drawings of cars to colour in.
Ms Ward she hasn't tried the colouring books as she is too busy.
The range includes The Zen of Colouring, Colour Me Calm and Mindfulness Patterns.
Post offices and other shops also stock adult colouring books.
