Feeling a bit down, I headed off in search of books. I know I have plenty to be getting on with but that's not the point.
It may have been my jaded state, but nothing I found really grabbed me. Not even in my favourite second hand bookshop. I picked up a couple of things, but put them back down after a couple of minutes.
Just as I was about the leave I spotted this tucked away.
It's a book I have wanted for a long time and even though it is an enormous tome, I just couldn't bring myself to buy it new (bad I know).
Quickly, I snatched it up, paid the 12 quid asking price and scuttled off grinning.
