Books are getting expensive. Very expensive. £9.99 for a paperback novel? Ouch.

I only bought one book today at that price, and I paid for it with my stampy card from Waterstones. Obviously I don't get a full stampy card all that often--you have to buy £100s worth of books to fill one, and that's only if you buy them £10 at a time. Although if you're nice to the bookseller they'll sometimes stamp your card twice if you've spent more than £10 but not quite £20.

£9.99 for a paperback. Sheesh.

Today's books:

The Cold Between by Elizabeth Bonesteel;
Joseph Priestley by A.D. Orange (a Shire Lifelines book);
S.S. Great Britain (a small guidebook published for the SS Great Britain Society);
Adventures in the Anthropocene: A Journey to the Heart of the Planet we Made by Gaia Vince
and
Gossip from the Forest: The Tangled Roots of our Forests and Fairytales by Sara Maitland.

The Anthropocene was in the clearance box in Waterstones at half price. I was torn between it and an interesting-looking book about autism. Planet won.

Then we went and had pizza. A self-indulgent day. We need one occasionally.
