Christian Aid book sale 2016

It was a lovely day for the start of this year's Christian Aid book sale in Edinburgh, although it was still a bit chilly when standing in the queue for almost an hour! I think I got one of my largest book hauls ever, and I struggled to carry them to the bus!

One of my aims at the sale was to look for a book on foraging, and I was lucky enough to find three!

There was also a bit of an alphabet theme in some of my books.

 Some books about/from Japan.

Some cookbooks - I was looking for something Italian, and this is by Mary Contini of Valvona and Crolla. It's a memoir with recipes. I also read a book about Denmark recently which raved about their pastries, so I'm looking forward to trying some Scandilicious baking!

Since I'm obsessed with the Clangers at the moment, I couldn't resist these books with illustrations by Peter Firmin!
