I got a copy of Darwin's Watch (I've never read it) for 99p and an unread (as new) copy of Amazing Maurice for £1.50. I also got a Bernard Cornwell thriller - Crackdown and a Sharpe DVD for £1 each from charity shops this morning. :)

My local library has a book sale going, each book 1 £, and I've picked up some books that caught my eye. Some of them are probably rubbish and I'll end up giving them away to a jumble sale or something.
However I did manage to find a book that my mother's been looking for for ages, so she'll be very pleased :D

I found a first edition hardback of Knight of Madness (short stories by various authors including Terry Pratchett's 'Hollywood Chickens'). That was £3 - more than I'd normally pay for a second hand book, but well worth it. :)

I also found 'Notes From a Small Island' by Bill Bryson for £1. I've never read any of his books, but lots of people have recommended him, so I'll give it a go. :D

I like Bill Bryson too. I like the one when he went back to the US after living in the UK, then went walkabout in the US. :D

If a non-US guy had written it, I bet there'd have been book burnings in the Bible Belt. :D
