Visiting friends interstate is fun particularly when they have similar interests
We arrive with goodies I think they will enoy
and often leave with goodies they think we will enjoy.
This time I passed on a couple of books
and funnily enough came home with a couple 🙂
One of her ealier releases it was published back in 1995 – I think this particular p/back copy is from about 2002.
The other a very thick older copy of a an omnibus edition
of what is known as the Tradescant Series
Earthly Joys (1998) – The Virgin Earth (1999)
Two novels about a gardening family set during the English Civil War
by Phillippa Gregory
So looking for something new to read last night I picked them up
looked at the ‘thick one’, put it down, then thought I’d give it a go.
It is one of those small sized paper backs (7″ x 4″) with ‘very’ small print
I took a quick glance at the other book
Same there – Same size – Same small print!!
Now I know those eye ops I had earler this year were successful and I don’t need specs but reading these looks like it’s going to be a bit of a trial.
Somewhere in the house are several pairs of those little readers
you know the ones you get from the $2 shops
they might help
If only I knew where I’d hidden them!!
Have ‘you’ had any problems locating things recently??
