TOPIC: I'm a very norty boy!

I'm a very norty boy! 2 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
For the first time EVER I've bought all 6 Booker finalists as E-Books. Normally I buy from independent bookshops to support them. But given the difference in travel storage space I reckon it's wiser to Kindle them Wonder if it will affect my opinion? At least I see this year we have an extra month to read them all.

I love rummaging through junk shops or charity shops for books.

Me too, and I get my tacky thriller books from "The Works", three for a fiver.

I am upset that Covid 1984 has killed off the charity bookshelves in Tesco. I suppose people are scared of becoming contaminated?
Anything that cant be cleaned easily is just bunged at the side of our cellar steps for a week, or until someone falls over it.

I also love the charity shops for books and always return them after I have read them. I don't have any more space for books in my home; so while I love a good hardback (and even the smell of them...), it is mostly kindle for me now.

I don't buy much from The Works however I did pick up Mike Love autobiography cheap from there. The books in The Works looks like stuff you get in airport's.

I do have a nice science fiction section and various Biggles books. L Ron Hubbard has always been a guilty pleasure of mine even Battlefield Earth is a favourite of mine.
