I ran out of Library books a couple of weeks ago so was looking forward to seeing the books that I'd ordered to collect from the library van.
A good selection again
Favourite and first to be read must be the new Elly Griffiths. Then there are a couple more reprints of books from the 50's by George Bellairs and another of the British Library Crime Classics. . Some new-to-me crime authors - Andrew Wilson and Nicola Slade and a couple of books by authors I've recently discovered - Natasha Solomons and Julie Wassmer. Then non fiction that I've seen on other peoples blogs. The Silent Day is an oral history of D Day on the Home Front. Plot 29 is about a man searching for information about his parents and working an allotment ( not sure how they are connected) and The Running Hare is about the secret life of farmland. Plus there's another book about flowers for cutting at the bottom of the heap
but it's one originally published in the States, which I didn't realise
when I requested it so not all relevant to here.
Many thanks for comments on the Instead of a Holiday post. The first thing Col said when he read it was that I had underestimated holiday costs and several of you agreed. I haven't the foggiest idea really although I have no intention of spending any amount near what ever the cost of a holiday is.
