... and more books ...
We decided to have a lazy self-indulgent day today.
First of all we went to our local Waterstones. I needed to do some research. And while we were there, we might have moved some books around a bit so that 'In Search of Adam' by Caroline Smailes was displayed to slightly better advantage than it might otherwise have been.
Then we drove out to a second hand and new bookshop in a nearby small town. Regular readers of this blog will know that I already have a scary TBR pile, but as so many of you confessed to having much bigger ones, I decided that it was fine for me to buy more. I'm particularly grateful to Debs who confessed to 81 books in her TBR pile!
So, taking this as a green light, I bought:
two collections of short stories - 'Bread and Chocolate' by Philippa Gregory
and, 'Not The End Of The World' by Kate Atkinson
'The Airman and The Carpenter' by Ludovic Kennedy another of his 'miscarriage of justice' books. I love them.
And finally, a find to be cherished. A small photocopied, self produced booklet entitled 'Helen's Story', which is the life story of Helen Attewell. More on this when I've read it and seen if I can find out anything more about her.
I have another book review on bookersatz. This time it is of 'The Unnumbered' by Sam North. Do have a look at bookersatz if you haven't already, there's some really interesting stuff on there.
