The Sunday Salon.





This week has found me buying books. Unfortunately my camera isn't working so I'm relying on Amazon to show you my stash.
The 'Anne Perry' books were bought in a charity shop for £1 each, I certainly managed a bargain there. I am halfway through 'The One Thing More' , a murder set in the time of the French Revolution. I know what you are thinking, ' well weren't there many murders then?'. This particular one takes place away from Madame Guillotine and amidst a plot to allow the King to escape the axe. It is very good, so far.
The other 'Anne Perry' is set in Victorian England. It is a 'William Monk' story.A new character for me.

'The Rose Labyrinth' is by Titania Hardie . The story takes place in 2003 but traces back to the Elizabethan spy and astrologer John Dee. By the description on the cover it seems like an adventure novel travelling across Europe seeking answers to riddles that are set by John Dee. All the riddles appear in the back of the book. I'm looking forward to this one!!
The snow is set to continue in some parts of U.K. this week so there could be a lot of readinggoing on in my house. Hope you all have a good week.

I've got The Rose Labyrinth too. I can't think why I haven't read it yet - it looks so good. Maybe I'd better read books inside of blogs!

At last I have posted the photo Meme.

The Secret Scripture looks a good read.

How I love to find charity shop books in good condition for £1.
