Today after teaching we ventured off to Wolverhampton in search of the Waterstones there. This really was an adventure, mainly because we got lost a great deal.
The traffic was a nightmare getting into Wolverhampton so it was a rather slow journey, then we could not find our planned car park and after driving around in circles we just dumped the car in the nearest car park and hoped for the best. The next problem was finding the store, my phone said a 6 minute walk, this ended up taking about half an hour after getting very lost, again!
Eventually however we found the store and I went in search of The Priory of the Orange Tree by Sammanth Shannon. After a bit of searching we found the book and I think luckily I managed to get the last copy in the store. To be honest I was rather surprised how big the book is but I am very excited to start reading it.
This store is sadly not a favourite of mine, I found the ground floor very cramped and claustrophobic but the top floor was wonderful, it was open and well organised and a relief from being downstairs.
After our adventure we found a Cafe Nero and had hot chocolates and treats. I thought my ginerbread girl was rather Harry Potteresque.
Another Waterstones is ticked off the list and I hope to do at least one more this month, I will keep you posted.
