Firstly, yes, I know I have a problem, I just can not stop buying books.
Secondly, no, I do not want to change. So prepare for many more book haul posts.
Thirdly, I really think I should give up work to read all these books but I do not think my husband would agree.
Saturdays I only work in the mornings and then I have the rest of the day off, so today after some clarinet and piano practice, my husband and I decided to visit Ironbridge and see the bridge newly opened after all the restoration work. Now Ironbridge also has an amazing second hand bookshop and a teddy bear shop. We visited the teddy bear shop first and admired all the amazing Steiff bears, and that is where Jeremy Fisher came from, although he is not a Steiff.
Next we hit the bookshop, I was doing so well until I got to the children’s section and discovered the Mary Poppins series in brand new condition for £3.50 each. Well I could not resist and so I left the shop with 5 new books. Slowly but surely I will fill the house to the brim with books.
I read an abridged Mary Poppins over Christmas so I am looking forward to reading the whole series in full.
Well Happy Reading this weekend everyone.
