Just a quick post to update on a few books I purchased yesterday while the missus and I were wandering about 5th Street in Courtenay. It's been a hot, dry month but it felt nice just to get out for a couple of hours. We checked out a couple of our favourite local stores; Home & Garden Gate, where Jo bought some soaps, a new handbag and a couple of other items; and Tab Imports, where we made note of a couple of furnishings, for future reference. Of course, they weren't the only shops we visited as it's a nice little local High Street. I left Jo for a brief time and headed to the two books stores; The Laughing Oyster and Second Page Used Books and managed to find a couple of books in each. On the way home we picked up a bucket of yummy ice cream at Benino Gelato in Comox. All in all, it was a lovely afternoon out. But of course, my purpose in writing this is to let you know what books I bought; 3 from Second Page and 2 from The Laughing Oyster.
Second Page Books finds - I was checking out some of the series I'm reading and trying to find the first books for them most part. But I also fleshed out a couple.
The Laughing Oyster pearls - I went in to The Laughing Oyster to check on the status of my order of the Harper Lee sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, which I pre-ordered (Jul 14th at the moment) and while I was there found a couple of other books. I also ordered the first book in the Backstrom series, a series by Swedish writer Leif GW Persson, the book being The Linda Murder Case.
But now to the two book I found -
So there you have. Must dash now as the missus has made bacon and egg sandwiches for brunch.. :)
