feather_ghyll: Book shop store front, text reading 'wear the old coat, buy the new book.' (Book not coat)
Had quite a good shopping day today - I had to pick up my bag with both arms by the end of the afternoon. It was nice to be outside and not get wet. One of my purchases included 'All That Katy Did' an omnibus edition of the first three Katy books - I've been looking for a hardback edition of 'What Katy Did at School' to replace a paperback, but this will take up less space than the three all together. I also got an Ibbotson and a Cabot that I'll no doubt read and review eventually, and a book by Mrs George de Horne Vaizey in an antiques shop, where I got to name my price. In hindsight, I should have lopped fifty pence off my offer, which was accepted with alacrity. Apparently, the owner hadn't sold any books for many a year - there weren't many there and nothing else took my fancy. I don't always bother to look for books in antique shops.
