Having to make a decision between staying at home and watching the England/New Zealand Rugby World Cup Semi-Final and going to the Giant NSPCC second-hand book sale took me about 5 seconds! The book sale won..........of course.
For the umpteenth year I travelled down the A12 to Holmwood prep-school on the outskirts of Colchester and joined the queue and came away later with these. A couple of children's books and a game of Chinese Chequers. (They had masses of jigsaws, loads of games and 100's of children's book so I think I was quite restrained)
I don't know why I picked up the top book as I knew I'd read it already but as it's fairly new and he has just published another book I thought it might be worth a bit more to sell and it is. Seems I can't get the buying and selling of books out of my system! Thank goodness that very few of the books for sale cost more than £1 each and children's books are 50p or less.
Damian Le Bas is the author I went to listen to at the 2018 Felixstowe book festival. I borrowed the book from the library but didn't read it for some reason so now it's on the shelves for me to try again.
As for the Witches Spell-a-day book - just curious to see what it was. The crossword book isn't really what I thought so it will be passed on. All the rest are books I've not read and will enjoy before they go off for sale or charity shops.
So once again I've added to the shelves, although temporarily, when I was supposed to be decreasing my book stock.
Wonder if there is any help for book-a-holics?
