There was great excitement when these came into the house on Thursday afternoon. Climbing French beans have a habit of lurking under the leaves so it was a surprise to see just how many we had.
When I was looking online to see what was happening at the Felixstowe Book Festival this year I came across a charity book sale also being held over the weekend but starting Thursday afternoon.
The opportunity to look at a biggish secondhand booksale was too good to pass over so we went to have a look and these are what I found, all 50p each.
2 Virago books -no idea what they are but Viragos are a rare find! A Barbara Pym and an old D.E Stevenson with the dreadful 1970s cover. The William book by Richmal Crompton is 'William Goes To War' so falls into my interest in WWII fiction even though it's a children's book and finally The Victorian Chaise-Longue which is one of the books that have been re-printed by Persephone.
Just looked on Amazon and this Penguin edition is £147!!!
I decided against a trip to Felixstowe for the book festival this year as the only person I was interested in hearing was Tracey Chevalier. Her books all take a real subject from history which she weaves around with a good story, but the hours talk was midday Sunday and I wanted to be well into painting the living room by then.
Do you know what starts this afternoon? Yes it's Whoop! Whoop! Wimbledon!
