Welcome to my blog, where I write about all manner of things... 

this week I bought...

three books (I think). I realised the other day that telling you that I bought three books is pretty uninteresting, so I thought I would elaborate... Best Served Cold, Joe Abercrombie (£9.73 - Amazon)

I have been reading JA's First Law series over the last couple of years and, whilst initially dubious, ended up enjoying them quite a bit. His characters are invariably flawed, his plots engaging and the overall story-arc inviting. This book is set in the same universe, but a different locale, and I am looking forward to seeing what he does with it.

Men and their Sheds, Summat Thorburn (£2 - Village fete)

This is a great little photobook about men and their sheds. Obvious really. It looks at the varying and imaginative uses that the men in question have made of their sheds, as well as the often unique/crazed designs that they have used.

Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame (50p - Village fete)

This is the 1968 hardback edition of this classic story. I have never read it and couldn't pass up the opportunity of such a nice looking book for such a bargain price. However, this (below) is what completely sold it to me. I am sucker for this sort of thing.
