A rare bargain

Like most people who are on the lookout for second-hand books, I’m always complaining that you don’t see old books around any more, just overpriced modern paperbacks. It’s weeks since I bought a book at the market or in a charity shop. But look what I came home with today. £5.00 the lot.

I'm especially pleased with the earlier ones, which I haven't read for ages. I could have bought a lot of the Penguin editions as well, but resisted.
