This weekend I went to London for a couple of days, I needed to get my flute serviced and that has to be done in Croydon so I used this as an excuse to spend some time in London.
My husband and I did not really have a plan of what we wanted to do in London but we came up with the idea of visiting the National Gallery and having a good wander around London. I was also determined to go to London’s biggest bookshop which is the Waterstones by Piccadilly.
The word overwhelmed comes to mind. As a book dragon and self confessed book hoarder being confronted with that many books in one building was rather daunting. I had set myself a budget and was determined to get a diary for next year. Well I got the diary, but the budget got broken, I was doing ok till I got to the till and the man behind the counter suggested a certain book to me and I could not say no, so the budget was broken. I promise I will try harder next time.
I bought five books and one diary.
My book haul is as follows:-
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
The Heart of a Dog by Mikhail Bulgakov
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
The Librarian by Salley Vickers
The Death of the Fronsac by Neal Ascherson
And my wonderful Sloth diary! I can not wait to get started putting things in my new diary. I love diaries and notebooks, does anybody else share my love?
Hopefully my new books will keep me busy for a while.
Oh also my husband bought me a limited edition Eeyore! I was one very happy Dragon, books and Eeyore in one day!
