I have gotten way behind in writing about recent book adventures, so all this week I will be posting about some of fun things I have picked up in the last couple of weeks.
I am going to kick off my book-a-palooza week with a few snaps of the books I picked up on Friday here in DC. Here is the whole pile.
Then we went to Capitol Hill Books. This is an old DC row house stacked to the rafters with books. And since I don’t go there often, there was a lot for me to choose from. In addition to these great books on London and Cambridge, I also got one on Wells Cathedral.
And who could pass up this beat-up old hardback copy of ICB’s A God and His Gifts? I also got a paperback of A Family and a Fortune. These were especially good finds given how scarce her books are in this country.
I already own the Vintage Classics reissue of Pied Piper, but I couldn’t say no to this great old cover. Plus I got three other titles I have never read before.
