Unless I see anything I fancy in a charity shop, it'll probably be two copies of Terry's Long Earth book in June. :mrgreen:

The Lord of the North by Bernard Cornwell :D

I will scan new charity shops, as my cousin is coming up at Easter and we will be travelling to such far flunf places as Bradford,Selby and various other Yorkshire places.
It's see what Long Earth is like by reading a bit of it in a Waterstones. Or maybe, maybe, If I am feeling really good (doubtful), I may wait until the new mapp and complete companion are out. And treat myself to a double whammy! :D :D

I currently have 40 sitting in my Amazon basket, I'll get them as soon as I have a spare £432.05. Considering the 2500 odd pounds worth of dental work I need doing in the next 3 months it's looking unlikely that that will be any time soon.........or ever.
