I haven’t bought a book for myself in years.
Partly because I read my books online from the local library. Partly because Loving Husband & Older Daughter are resolute book procurers, and they take care of our family’s library.
My Generous & FarAway in London Aunt & Uncle (aka Godparents to my daughters) gifted us with a festive monetary present. We all went wild and got ourselves all sorts of exciting things which we may have hesitated over getting for ourselves (Christmas cake from Marks & Spencers, tipple to go with said Christmas cake, Moana lego, books, books and more books).
I ordered Laurie Graves‘ The Great Library Trilogy (the final book just hit the stands last month) as a treat for myself. They arrived a few days before Christmas, which was much faster than anticipated.
I will be enjoying this treat for a long while yet. Thank you, Shmee & Ton! Thank you, Laurie!
