I’m back from Savannah and I had a wonderful time. Beautiful tree-lined streets, historic squares, and strolls along River street. The sightseeing and food were great and I picked up a few books of course.
I picked up A Child’s Christmas in Wales at E. Shaver bookseller.
Next I visited Books on Bay right off the river, a nice little shop with rare and antique books. They also sale Fiesta dinnerware in the front. The shop owner was very friendly. She collects books that have her name in the title.
The most exciting find here was a copy of The Shuttle by Frances Hodgson Burnett with an inscription from December 25, 1909. I received a copy of this in Persephone gray for Christmas. Very excited to read this one.
There I picked up Excellent Women and Jane and Prudence by Barbara Pym, Strangers by Antonia White in Virago green and Cry Wolf by Aileen La Tourette, a Virago fiction that looks like it will be a good sci fi read.
And of course I dropped into the local big box store and picked up The Thirteenth Tale and Her Fearful Symmetry. I’d planned to listen to this one on audio book but couldn’t stay awake past the first CD, I suppose I’d better stick to reading.
