One of the huge benefits to living where I do is that the library is a mere five minutes walk away. One of the downfalls to this is that I completely ignore the books on my own shelves. While I rarely buy books these days, if I see one I like the look of when I'm out and about (and it's super cheap) I'll pick it up anyway. I've been using the library more often lately since I have a couple of hours each day on the train to read, but it means the books I actually own get pushed to the side. My brain seems to realise that there's no time limit on when I have to read these books so I never get around to them! Now, it's time to make a start.
One of my favourite books is I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith, so when I saw It Ends with Revelations in The Works for £1, I snapped it up. I have no idea what it'll be like but it looks like a quick read anyway. Jurassic Park I've had for aaaages - I bought it purely because I love the film and was curious about how all the action would work in book form (or indeed if there was really that much excitement or if it was all added for the screen). Alys Always was recommended on a podcast I was listening to at work and it seems like another quick read - my favourite thing after some of the bigger books I've been reading lately! (I'm reading Emma by Jane Austen at the moment and it's taking longer than a Game of Thrones book, how?!) And the Mr Selfridge one I found in a charity shop in Aberfeldy, which I bought because again, I want to see how true to the book/life the TV show was.
Has anyone read these? Are they worth the time?!
