On a dreary Monday we decided to go out for some lunch and then to the annual book fair at Founders Park. I probably could have spent 5 hours there but alas I was with the boyfriend. Still, he was very well behaved and kept himself (and me, and possibly some other punters) amused by reading excerpts from very very old books on marriage. He also bought some books, to my delight.
I had some great finds. Including some non-fiction (staples in my book diet). But my best find was a massive book published in 1975 by a lady called Margery Fisher – Who’s Who in Children’s Books. It features, in alphabetical order, every character you can imagine with descriptions and beautiful illustrations.
