Christian Aid book sale 2018

It was a bumper year at the book sale! I'd decided to take a week's holiday from work, so I headed off on a sunny Saturday feeling very relaxed knowing that I could return to the sale during the week if I wanted (which I did, but I think I'll have to write another post on what I bought then, as there's quite enough here!).

This map with its retro cover was a lucky little extra find inside the Kyoto book, and I loved these leaflets on display at the ephemera stall which also had great retro designs!

I found some novels that were on my wishlist, so I got those. Goodness knows when I'll manage to work my way through my to-be-read pile, though!

I've wanted the book This is Edinburgh by M Sasek for years, so it was a great find. The illustrations were even more amazing than I'd expected, and it really shows the Edinburgh I know and love rather than a clicheed version of it. Now I want to collect all his books!
