I have a great respect for my local library, and sincerely hope that the outreach service that visits my local area every two weeks is allowed to continue. I guess in these dark days of local government cutbacks , it would be all too easy to dispense with this vital service - but it would cause such upset...particularly for those who can't travel very far, or who can't afford to buy the books they want to read...
My aim is always to borrow at least one book, and by ordering current books I keep the stock circulating.....!
My books borrowed today are..
- The Gallows Curse by Karen Maitland - I'm a huge fan of this talented writer, and have devoured her previous two books - reviews from my book loving friends are good - so I think I shall make this a priority read.
- Belle by Leslie Pearse - I have only heard good things about this book, and whilst I haven't read too many by this author, I am looking forward to this one.
- Catching the Tide by Judith Lennox - I love her books -they are great escapism - huge family sagas that hold your attention from the first page.
- Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simondson - I love books about books, and this one has had good reviews - I'm looking forward to reading it.
