New Arrivals – Lancaster Part II

In which I confess that, completely cheesed off with work but relieved to have finished an assignment, I went to the market and spent £7.25.

I have seen some great coverage of these (mostly Scaredy Cat, I think) and picking up all 3 together at 75p each was too much to resist.

Having picked up Kate Morton’s The Forgotten Garden last Saturday, I found the preceding tome, The House at Riverton. My cousin was reading it within a few hours of me having brought it home. It looks that good.

Bill Bryson – I loved Notes from a Small Island, so this obviously had to come home with me.

Paul Torday – The Irresistible Inheritance of Wilberforce; Jed Rubenfeld – The Interpretation of Murder; Simon Brett – The Stabbing in the Stables; all of these looked really good fun and I hadn’t heard of any of them (although Mr RFBT informs me that the Rubenfeld is not only famous but was turned into a movie?) so this was some old school “picking it up on a whim”.

I also picked up the 2nd and 3rd books of Stieg Larsson’s trilogy for my father, who really enjoyed book 1. No photos as you all know what they look like. (not included in the total of £7.25)

And this DVD was in Oxfam (and therefore also not in the £7.25) and looked most excellent. I look forward to watching it this week! Julianne Moore is wonderful.

    You got a good haul there. I can confirm that ‘Far from Heaven’ was really good – hope you enjoy it.

    Paul Torday is one of my favourite living authors. I hope you enjoy ‘The Irresistable Inheritance of Wilberforce’, and if you do, then do try his other novels. My favourite is ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’.
