The Readers, with Simon and Thomas who do tend to read things I enjoy. Mostly I can happily nod along with their banter and suggestions but occasionally they really pique my interest in something new or they remind me of an author I've enjoyed in the past. And on this trip, they did both. Better yet, when I poked around the used bookstores, I found everything I was looking for. The first excitement was Plant Dreaming Deep by May Sarton, signed by the author. I have long loved Sarton, first reading Kinds of Love way back when I was in high school back at the dawn of time, but I rarely think of getting more of her works. The second was The Mitfords: Letters Between Six Sisters edited by Charlotte Mosley. I have Nancy Mitford's novels but I don't know that I knew there was a book of correspondence between the sisters so when this one was mentioned, I was immediately intrigued. And while I was poking around in this same state of mind, I also stumbled across Angela Thirkell's Tribute for Harriette. I have all of her Barsetshire Chronicles and adore them so this was a very pleasing find. If you want to see the titles of the rest of my new books, feel free to poke around on my LibraryThing bookshelf. Sadly, I can't blame anyone else for the others I brought home. They're all on me. I guess I'm just easy.
