This week's acquisitions (and two loans!)
Two acquisitions arrived in the post this week - Enid Bagnold's The happy foreigner and EH Young's The Curate's Wife. I've already read and enjoyed the former (review in due course), and the latter is something I've wanted to read for a while.
Two books also arrived as a test-drive/loan; Hayley from Desperate Reader kindly offered to lend me books from her Virago collection. She sent me a long list and I picked out a couple of titles which I hadn't heard of and which sounded intriguing. I ended up with Pirates at play and A fine of two hundred francs. Hayley hasn't read either of these, so I'm giving them a test drive and will be writing about them in due course. Thank you very much Hayley!
