Amongst these lovely volumes literally begging to be read is the latest Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher…….I’ve put it off whilst I re read the series from the beginning again but still I’ve only read the first chapter …because I don’t want to finish it!!!!
and yes (sigh) it wasnt actually approximate…I measured…with a tape measure… I know…sad!.
Theres also ‘House of leaves’ which a colleague has loaned to me….deliberately to send me insane
I presume. Has anyone actually read this without their brains imploding?
Drood by Dan Simmons, a book about crows, a couple of art books and a copy of Chocolat which I am re reading are the top few….
This bookshop….nay repository..sorry in-joke will need more shelves.
