Library Haul

Yesterday, I actually came back from the library with some books to read. I’ve nearly finished The Girl from the Fiction Department, about Sonia Orwell. Hilary Spurling felt Sonia’s reputation had been besmirched and set out to put the record straight. The Sue Cook I think I’ve seen well reviewed somewhere and Fannie Flagg, well, I’ll give her a try. I only wanted light reading. The Georgette Heyer was a 10p trolley buy and it’s falling apart; the other library reject, by Robert Goddard, is a hardback in excellent condition. Tsk.
