After dangling two charity bookshops in The Big City in front of my nose for weeks, husband took me there on Saturday. Ah, what bliss. We did the two charity shops, had pizza for lunch, then briefly trawled Waterstones. I got the points off an old receipt added to my loyalty card, bought two books, and got my stamp card stamped. A very successful day.

And a lot of books.

A *lot* of books.


In no order whatsoever:

Black Boy by Richard Wright;
Race to the Pole by James Cracknell and Ben Fogle;
Masada by Yigael Yadin (this book was snatched off the shelf with happy cries of Mine! You're coming home with me!);
The New Gulliver, or, The Adventures of Lemuel Gulliver Jr in Capovolta by Esme Dodderidge (a Women's Press SF book);
The Fox Boy: The Story of an Abducted Child by Peter Walker;
Print and Prejudice by Sara Goodman Zimet (husband chose this book for me);
The Girl with Glass Feet by Ali Shaw;
Contradictionary: an a-z of confusibles, lookalikes and soundalikes by Fritz Spiegl;
Dhalgren by Samuel R. Delaney;
The Long Tomorrow by Leigh Brackett;
White on Black on White by Coleman Dowell;
Pastoral by Nevil Shute;
Downbelow Station by C.J. Cherryh (am surprised the charity shop was still selling this, even at £1, as the book block has entirely separated from the cover and, furthermore, broken into two pieces);
The Birth of the People's Republic of Antarctica by John Calvin Batchelor;
The Saxonbury Printout by Phil Smith (am pretty sure I already have a copy, but WHERE?);
The Pride of Chanur by C.J. Cherryh (which seems to have managed to get damaged since coming into the house)
The Baby in the Mirror: A Child's World from Birth to Three by Charles Fernyhough (another of husband's picks).

Where'm I going to put 'em all??????
