I got £100 book vouchers and bought myself Beowulf, The Foundation Pit, a book that answers twenty questions about Jane Austen's novels and a memoir of Agatha Christie, a Dorothy Sayers book and a Ngaio Marsh one from the second hand section of the book shop.

I've got Christmas money too. Shall I spend it all on books, and if so, which?

I got the latest cazalet chronicle and Mrs Webber's Omnibus by Posy Simmonds, which is so Mumsnet it's not true despite being started in about 1979!!

I got Starlight & Storm by Gaston Rebuffat, an actual paper book with pages and everything, from DH who is a Kindlevangelist and thinks paper books are totally pointless!

To be fair it is out of print and not available on Kindle, and I did ask very nicely smile Looking forward to reading it!
