Oddest place you've found DWJ

Just following on from my rant on the Cart & Cwidder cuts, really.
What's the oddest place anyone has found a copy of a DWJ book?

I imagine that I'm not the only one on this list who scans books wherever I 
see them. (Lots of green may signify Penguin Crime). Lots of pubs in the UK 
have books as decoration. These are quite often things that have been 
thrown away from elsewhere, but they can be fun to look through. (Yes we 
Librarians do throw books away if they don't sell or are very out of date, 
oddly it can be quite a nice feeling but I digress)

I spent the most miserable year of my life in Loughborough, a place only 
redeemed by its pubs. But oh the joy to find a copy of Spellcoats amongst 
the books decorating one of the pubs! It wasn't available in paperback at 
the time, and I had only ever been able to read the library copy as child.
My boyf couldn't understand why my face lit up with excitement at finding 
it again after several years.

I've spent many hours browsing in second hand bookshops, but I've never 
found a DWJ.
