This is why I don’t do bookshops: Friday Finds

FRIDAY FINDS  from adailyrhythm showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).


I thought I had solved my ‘problem’ of collecting books for my ever tottering TBR pile when a couple of 2nd hand book stalls moved from my weekly shopping stops – back last summer. Then I joined two new book groups in a nearby town. Unlike the other two I belong to these are held by the book shop. Instead of borrowing the reads one buys the book.

Well okay I thought.

 Just buy the next read and leave.



While the others buy their copies, and we wait the unlocking of the door (the groups meet at night) I have time to wander around and idly pick up the books on display.

This is why I don’t do bookshops any more.

I had forgotten.

I have an addiction!!!

So this week I came home with

Along with next Book Group read:

Ah well – as long as I don’t switch on the internet!!!!!!
