Waterstones Challenge: Peterborough

Another Waterstones challenge adventure happened yesterday and this time I had company.

I met my best friend and her husband yesterday in Peterborough which is half way between where we both live, so of course I had to visit the Waterstones store and tick off another store from the list. So I have now visited 8/283 stores, I know a long way to go yet but will still keep pushing.

We had a wonderful day weather wise and we also did some exploring of the cathedral and visited Catherine of Aragon’s place of burial and Mary Queen of Scots first resting place before she was moved by her son to Westminster Abbey. The cathedral was absolutely stunning and an amazing feat of engineering for its age. I took some pictures to share on the blog, so here they are.

 

Of course I also bought some books at Waterstones so here they are:-

Two of the books I treated my husband to:-

The King’s Evil by Andrew Taylor (Signed copy)

How to Argue with a Cat by Jay Heinrichs 

I am constantly arguing with our cats and they never listen to me so I might have to borrow this book.

 

The books I got:-

The Crow Trap by Ann Cleeves

This was recommended to me by my best friend so I bought the first one of the series, I think my dad would also like to read it so I will be lending it out a bit as well.

The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths

I’m collecting all of the Dr Ruth books, so I had to buy this one.

I also bought yet another bookmark!

The Peterborough Waterstones store was really nice with lots of choice book wise and I loved how open it was. I did not go upstairs however because I could not afford anymore books. The staff were also lovely and very helpful.

All in all a fantastic day and a great start to my Easter Holidays.
