At the weekend we went to a local Christmas craft fair, in the social club. Lots of people there and a fair selection of stalls but nothing much we wanted to buy. I rather fancied a toy moose, but it was more than I could bring myself to pay. Or thoil, as they say in Yorkshire.

There were however some cheap books. And so the inevitable happened.

Tornado Down: The Horrifying True Story of Their Gulf War Ordeal by Flt Lts John Peters and John Nichol
Precious Victims by Don W. Weber and Charles Bosworth, Jr.

Also on the stall were a lot of Colin Dexters that tempted me, but not enough.

In other news, I am giving some thought to my Christmas wishlist. And realising I have left it far too late to send things to Monissa. Again. Good resolutions wrap no parcels.

You can view the wishlists I've made public at Libib's public face. Should you so wish.

Two so far. Assorted can only grow but I'm hoping Mistressworks will shrink.
