Default 1st HB+DJ

Just found a nice tight copy of "The Ship Who Searched" in a used book shop.

Slightly pricey (but I didn't have to pay for postage!)

Good find, P'ter.

Will you believe that, one of the few times this happened to me, it was the exact same title? It was at the Dordrecht Bookfair and the book was 9 euro. Slightly expensive but, as you said, no postage

Nice find. I agree about the saving on postage, not to mention the fretting over the safety of the shipping services. And then there's the pleasure of tucking your discovered treasure under your arm and taking it home and telling us all about it. Sounds like a good day, all in all!
