Braving the rain was worth it!
I got soaked from my middle down at lunchtime as I trudged through what didn't look like very heavy rain, but was certainly very wet rain, to return some library books that despite being interesting enough to pick up did not seem to capture my attention once home. And, whilst I was there, I decided to browse the shelves once more.
I started in the B's, deciding to pick up another Maeve Binchy to reread:
and then spotted another one which had passed me by when it came out:
I picked up some chick lit by Fiona Gibson and Julia Williams, whose books I have enjoyed previously:
..and I found a Susan Howatch that I hadn't read - I haven't read too many of her books and they are quite weighty but full of plot.
I'm still on the look for books featuring weddings or marriage, so this one caught my eye, although it is a crime novel and might not invovle the happy depictions that I want to read about!
I've been looking forward to reading this one since it was reviewed on Kimbofo's blog - it sounds fascinating to learn about a different culture.
And I also picked up a local history pamphlet of memories about the village where we have just moved too - today it is quite ugly in places (and really far too big to be called a village...), and it is interesting to see how things used to be.
In other news, my two Stella Gibbons books that I mentioned on Wednesday have arrived, and I am halfway through reading Starlight.
I have an exciting literary theme to my Bank Holiday weekend, and hope that I'll have some photos to share with you next week.
