This cat lives a better life than most of us. It spends its days pottering around an old bookshop in the Peak District, looking out the window at the duck pond and, most probably, getting the odd cake crumb from the tea room.
Tag: second-hand books
I went back to the second-hand bookstore, where I previously spotted a huge number of Folio Society editions sitting on the shelf, most of them in pristine condition. I bought two books: Lives of the Later Caesars and Ovid’s The Art of Love, both of which were marvellously illustrated. (I’m not sure the latter is the kind of thing you’d want to leave open when your mother visits.)
These are wonderfully constructed books. You won’t find that sort of quality or craftsmanship on (or even in) your Kindle.
