I really did not need more books, after coming back from England with over twenty books, but I could not help myself popping into my local charity shop. I came out with seven books, so I did not go too crazy. I spent a grand total of €4.50, which is hardly a fortune.
In the English language section I found a beautiful compilation of Jane Austen‘s novels, so the other compilation I picked up there last time has been relegated to the Guest House library, as it’s nowhere near as nice! It looks brand new and was only €1!
I also picked up what appears to be a 1917 edition of H G Wells’ The Soul of a Bishop. An absolute steal again at €1!
I picked up a few throwaway books, by which I mean just easy reads, probably destined for the Guest House library.
I got Golden Lion by Wilbur Smith. I read a couple of Wilbur Smith books in my teens. I think those were set in Egypt. I remember enjoying them, so I figured I would pick this one up.
I randomly picked up Patricia Cornwell’s All That Remains. I have never read any of her books before. I presume it’s your regular crime mystery type of thingy.
I also picked up Making Your Mind Up by Jill Mansell, which looks to be simple chick lit, which I don’t read much of, but I kind of like from time to time. It does have a pretty sort of cover.
I also picked up a couple of Dutch language books as well.
Paleis van Sterren (Beneath A Marble Sky) by John Shors sounded like an interesting read with a story based around the Taj Mahal in India.
The second Dutch book I picked up is De Zaak Toetanchamon by Herman van Campenhout. It’s a Dutch book, it’s title translates as The Case Tutanchamon and is historical fiction as far as I can tell. It’s a tiny book!
My TBR list is growing ever larger, but I will get round to reading all these books. I promise!
