More Charity Shop Finds (Pt 1)

I've not posted for a while, so thought I would do one of the no-thought-required posts on my recent purchases from charity shops.  I'd done all the photos, but still couldn't get the post written.  Then, yesterday, I found something remarkable in a charity shop...

So, here are recent finds.  First, books (in order of pulpiness).



It turns out that I already have the Poe, but what the hell - this is a nice edition!


I read a lot of Solzhenitsyn in the 80s (like you do when you're in the sixth form).  These are stories he wrote after the fall of communism and his return to Mother Russia.


I thought I already had this, but don't.  You can't beat Conan Doyle!  If you don't know his non-Sherlock Holmes stories, you must read them - especially his speculative fiction.  The Brigadier Gerrard stories are funny ones.

His and Her's

One of these hats was bought new on the internet.  The other was bought in a charity shop and cost a tenth of the price.  Can you tell which is which?

Tomorrow I will tell you about the amazing purchases I made yesterday (and about the Ones that Got Away!).
