booksMy local library has just has another sale of withdrawn books, Hooray! and this time I knew about it in advance. The booty today was 9 books for a total price of… £1.60!

two to give to friends, probably: H.P. Lovecraft “The Dreams in the Witch House” and John Updike “Villages”

two Scottish writers: Christopher Brookmyre “A Big Boy Did It And Ran Away” and Quintin Jardine “Dead and Buried” (reading the Bob Skinner novels in sequence but encountered a bit of a gap)

two American writers: James Lee Burke “To the Bright and Shining Sun” and Patricia Highsmith “The Blunderer”
a funny one?: Matthew Baylis “The Last Ealing Comedy”

improvement?: Classic fm “One Hundred Favourite Poems”

artistic: Maria Constantino “Klimt”

So that’s me sorted for the next few months. More shelves  probably required tho’ as the  backlog is growing . Good thing I was given a wee portable reading light as a present so I can work through them even in the gloaming of 3:00 and 5:00 ish on dull afternoons.
