We’re going on a Book Hunt

It’s Folk Festival weekend here, which means a large charity fair, always with a huge bookstall. After parking, we were just about to make our way to the Minster Green when we were ambushed by the CAB, who were having a book sale on the pavement. So we bought some books. Then we made our way through the merry throng of folk dancers and spectators and bought some more. We both did quite well and, as so often happens, huskyteer found me a treasure. I got these



What a lovely cover on the Bryson. And more



My best buy was the book huskyteer found.: Gardener’s Nightcap by Muriel Stuart. I already have the Persephone edition (another bargain, as I found it in a charity shop) but this is a first in a slightly ragged dustwrapper, which of course I prefer. I’ve since found that it’s a very scarce book. It was a really lucky find as book sales are like charity shops nowadays: no old books. In all, I spent less than £10.00, so I was pleased with my haul and can’t complain of having ‘nothing to read’.

What a fun day out at the folk festival with the added bonus of books for sale :) It looks like you had some great finds, especially the one found by huskyteer, and all for £10. A bargain!
Yes, it was even hot and sunny in the morning.
I'm pleased with my bargainous purchases, even though some will have to be passed on when I've read them. No room!
