Well, the point of having a regular post is to force me into reading and thus making a change. Gone for me are the glory days of commuting, where I had almost three hours of enforced reading time each day. I need incentive.
What I've bought this week...
I've had a bit of a charity shop blitz.
Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveller's Wife - 50p
HG Wells, The Shape of Things to Come - Although a 1973 paperback edition (the old Corgi Science Fiction Library), unread and very nice. 50p.
The First Aid Manual (9th Edn) - An as-new copy by Dorling Kindersley. It'll sit next to First Aid for Dogs and hopefully be used less. 75p.
A Brief History of the Royal Air Force - Apparently distributed to every serving member of the RAF and reserves in 2004. £1.00.
Leonard Mosley, Faces From The Fire: The biography of Sir Archibald McIndoe - £1.00
