Today I…bought three books- well, they arrived in the post today.
Inspired by one of the books on my Asia & the Victorians module ( see 69/365 ) The Golden Chersonese by Isabella Bird, I ordered another of her books, A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains. After reading the extract on line about her relationship with Rocky Mountain Jim, I am looking forward to finding out more after my essay and exam revision has been completed. One for the shelf.
While browsing for the above book I came across this:
The Illustrated Virago Book of Women Travellers. Excellent condition. Hard back.
A penny plus postage. SOLD.
Beautiful photos. Interesting range of authors.
One for the bedside table, to be enjoyed a little at a time.
Also this: Unsuitable for Ladies. Immaculate condition. Hard back. Lots of very positive reviews. Also a penny. SOLD. I am going to read the relevant chapters on South East Asia this weekend as they may be useful for my essay. The rest- to be enjoyed later.
I am REALLY looking forward to tackling my reading shelf this summer.
