Window Shopping on Sunday
The festive season's sparkle and shine came after a good scrounge around a second-hand bookshop though. No doe-eyed dreamy browsing there, I was all business. Since a certain cruel youth has decided not to return my library's lone copy of The Woman in Black by Susan Hill, I bought my own. The Slaves of Solitude by Patrick Hamilton and Summer Will Show by Sylvia Townsend Warner are NYRB editions and titles I've been coveting for some time so they went into my bag. And last, but not least, R picked up a copy of Juliet Gardiner's The Blitz for me because he knew I liked it.
Book shopping Sundays mean book guilt on Monday but somehow I think I'll get over it. It was a lovely day.
