Went to a charity shop in the village where one of my son's lives so that I could work in a visit to him as well. I made sure I took Digestive biscuits with me this time as sometimes he has eaten himself out of house and home!
Got 13 books. Well, in truth 14, but I didn't realize that in one of the books some pages were loose, so I didn't keep that one. I'm a bit of a purist like that!
Anyway, I got some Penguins and a couple of Virago's.
Compulsion by Jonathan Kellerman
Politika (Power Plays) by Tom Clancy
I play the Drums in a Band Called Okay by Toby Litt
The Wrecker by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott

If anyone would like to join in the fun of a little group I started please feel free. It's a place where we can share books that we've found in charity/thrift shops, library sales, garage sales etc. You can find the group here:


All welcome!
