When your best intentions fail …. here’s another bookhaul!!

I may have mentioned in my reading resolutions for 2017 that I was going to be more reserved and thoughtful in my purchasing of books this year!  That WAS going well until today when I ventured out shopping where there were evil bookshops and charity shops luring me in!

I was good in Waterstones and browsed, while mentally buying about 6 or 7 books, so thought I’d cracked it and was showing new levels of maturity! It didn’t last too long as I then ventured into WH Smiths where I am normally very well behaved and just wander around sniffing books as I go, but today I noticed they had a few (5 to be exact!) of the Penguin ClothBound Classics that I didn’t have in my collection at home and they were being advertised for £9.99 each….. I couldn’t NOT at that price surely?!  And when they were rung through the till they seemed to have a 5 for 4 deal –  inside I was squealing with delight!!!  So it was obviously meant to be – does anyone else use that as a way of justifying a little splurge??! – and so I am extremely delighted with the latest additions to my Clothbound Classics collection….

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings by Charles Dickens

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

And then there was the obligatory look around a couple of charity shops – always happy to find books that have been on my radar for a little while so my happy book buying day was complete!

The Long Way to a small angry planet by Becky Chambers

Grimm Tales by Philip Pullman

The Strange and Beautiful sorrows of ava lavendar by Leslye Walton

So that is it for now… again… no more….. i promise….. please believe me…. I can do this……. honest……….
