There was a chap there with two big boxes packed with books published by the Valentine Romance Club, an imprint new to me. They were all 1950s editions in lovely dustwrappers and if I had any space at all at home, I’d have haggled with him for a price for the lot. As it was, I decided on a fiver’s-worth.
The Denise Robins cover is particularly fine, I think. They all need a good dust.
I had to photograph this one separately because of the title. Hee!
I also got this little pile, which includes: a novel I haven’t read by my new favourite light writer, Rachel Hore; a replacement copy of Nella Last’s Peace and a hardback Stella Gibbons’ novel. It’s a book club edition and I need to put a cover on it straight away, but still, it’s not something you see very often.
Total outlay, £7.30. As I was also quite lucky at the library this week, I’m not short of reading matter. Now, can my poor old legs manage a jumble sale this afternoon?
