Time for some more bookporn! Mainly because it's been about six weeks since I did some, so it's time, but also, when I looked I realised there were er... quite a lot. Seems I went a bit berserk after we got back from London and made up for the fact that I was in the capital and only bought six books. So er... not one but two photos are called for this time. Ooops.

The bottom three are new, the top three - charity shop or eBay/AM buys. Mistress of the Art of Death I bought because its author, Ariana Franklin is actually a new pen name for Diana Norman, one of my favourite historical writers. Needle in the Blood, an historical about The Bayeaux Tapestry, has been recced so highly in so many places I had to get a copy to see what all the fuss was about. The Blood Doctor was recced by toomanybooks, the Richmal Crompton was another rec from a book blogger, and Crocodile on the Sandbank is the first Amelia Peabody book and will be a reread for me before I sample the rest of the series, which I've fancied reading for ages.

Again, a mix of old and new. True North is a travel book about a chappy who takes a seaplane journey over Alaska, The Yukon and The Northwest Territories. Again, seen recced on a book blog and irresistible to me who has zero resistance when it comes to books. The Ratcatcher is goodnightlady's fault, Out Stealing Horses and Cry the Beloved Country are two more book blog recs. The next two are sundry charity shop buys and the top two are, of course, Georgette Heyers as I'm trying to add to my puny collection of 15. (There are over 50!)

Perhaps I need to spend a bit less time reading other people's book blogs...


HP is finished. I finished it a couple of hours ago. Had to ring Mother as she rang during my reading and J told her I couldn't talk to her *beams*.

Then I did a shortish post on the book and played catch-up with my flist - not that there was that much to catch up with, very quiet.

I hope you have a lovely day of reading tomorrow.
Yes, I just looked at my flist's posts and saw that you'd already finished it. Wow, that was quick. I didn't look at your thoughts of course... I shall have so many posts to go back to when I've eventually finished it. Good job I've made a note...

All so quiet because they're reading HP I expect. ;-)

I hope you have a lovely day of reading tomorrow.

Thank you! Hoping to get it finished by tomorrow night - even as far as I've got it's very good.

:-) Not as speedy as some :-)

I shall enjoy hearing your thoughts in due course. I've spent some time going through my flist for posts too; and no doubt there will be more over the next few days.

It's lovely to see, thus far, everyone putting everything behind the cut. I checked mine half a dozen times before posting and then again after posting!
