No, really – they will!
As Middle Child is home over Christmas we popped into the Big Town for lunch and a couple of bits and pieces. As we were at a different end of town than usual, I stopped off at a charity shop I don’t usually visit. This of course was A Mistake as I ended up with more weight to add to the TBR mountain:
I was really pleased to come across this as I have all Vera Brittain’s memoirs (and some fiction) but this is new to me (and a lovely Virago to boot).
Still on the theme of war, a Waugh I don’t have – and indeed as it’s a trilogy it counts as three books in one!
This I must confess I know nothing about (until I google it) – but it’s by Stella Gibbons of “Cold Comfort Farm” fame so that’s good enough for me. (And thinking about it, I should have made CCF one of my reads of the year – definitely!)
Isn’t that cover lovely? I would have bought the book for that alone, but as it’s by J.B. Priestley – an author I’ve always fancied reading, and have felt more so recently having read Alex’s posts – it came home with me.
I should say, however, that these four lovelies cost me the grand total of £4.25 – so from a fiscal point of view, it wasn’t too awful. Just from the point of view of space…..
And the Oxfam had a little something that’s missing from my Agatha collection, so there you go – doomed!
