This week's book finds

South Molton market came up trumps again today with several good cheap book finds.

Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper (YA)
Cold Shoulder Road by Joan Aiken (YA)
Cornwall and the Tumbling Sea by Nigel Tangye

Particularly pleased with the first two. Over Sea, Under Stone is a YA book I hear a lot of people mention when they talk about quality children's books and Cold Shoulder Road appears to be part of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase series. I need to get a handle on this series because, according to the Fantastic Fiction site, there are 13 of these and the one I got is no. 10. Hmm. No idea whether I should start at the beginning when I eventually get to them...

Also picked up this week - a couple of travel books: Back Door to Byzantium by Bill and Laurel Cooper and Travellers' Tales From Heaven and Hell a book that apparently resulted from a nationwide competition. And two fantasies: The Moon of Gomrath by Alan Garner (sequel to The Weirdstone of Brisingamen picked up at a charity shop last week) and Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner a book that seems to be very well known amongst fantasy fans so I thought it was time I gave it a go.

Current read: Traitor's Moon by Lynn Flewelling.
