Well I Never…!!!

April 1, 2009
After having lunch with Mum, yesterday, we went for a wander up the High Street.  Passing Waterstone’s bookstore, a book in the window caught my eye, so I had to go in to look for it…but,instead of finding that book, I found Ian Rankin’s Exit Music…the final Rebus story.Smile
Mum offered to buy it for me, for my birthday, but as there was a three for two offer on we looked around at the other books.  Seeing nothing to interest us, I said to leave it until next week.  We continued our wander.Hot
Upper High Street…suddenly I had the urge to pop into the Cancer Research charity shop to look at the books…and there was Exit Music…for £2…instead of £7.99…!!  Bargain!! Open-mouthed

    I almost fainted when you said \’passing Waterstones\’. You never pass that shop!!! Don\’t do that to me!Well done you. I did the same thing with another book yesterday. I saw it a couple of weekends ago for £3 and then bought it for 50p in one of the charity shops. Then, blow me, I met my mother outside the shop and she said I could have borrowed it off her for free. Oh well, I have my own copy now and I can read it whenever I like and the charity shop got a pound out of me cos I put the change back in their pot.Been gardening today and putting food out for the slugs. They do so love a good Clematis. xx

    Much as I love Ian Rankin\’s books, I\’m afraid I can\’t afford to pay his royalties…but I\’m sure he won\’t begrudge the money going to a worthwhile charity…!Anyway, I put that down to angelic guidance and thanked them for it.

    I\’ve removed the piles of books from the floor in my bedroom this morning and put them on the various bookcases. If I buy any more I\’ll need to get another new bookcase too.I like charity shop books and can spend ages going through them. We\’ve also got a really old second hand book shop down the road that\’s crammed with all sorts of books with very little room between the cases. Not the place to take a wheelchair! Wonderful shop though, however tatty it is. I\’ve found some good books in there!Have a great day. Hope you\’ve got some of this sun too. xx

Yesterday was lovely, though.We have got the Oxfam bookshop in town, and there is Readers Rest halfway up Steep Hill…well, I think it\’s still there…it\’s been a few years since I went up that way, but as I plan on re-discovering my inner-tourist this year, I will be making the climb sometime soon…le puff…le pant….le puff…
