I went to a fantastic second-hand book shop this morning and found some great books. A couple of classics for me, Dubliners by James Joyce, A Portrait of the Young Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce and The Log from the Sea of Cortez by John Steinbeck.
I also bought a couple of lovely books for the girls, The Hunting of the Snark by Lewis Carroll and The Don’t Be Scared Book by Ilse-Margaret Voight. The Don’t Be Scared Book has some words of wisdom for all of us, ‘If you are bothered in your slumber by a fierce and long cucumber – don’t be scared’. The message is clear and the illustrations are delightfully quirky and detailed.
