    • A bit of both – I’m reading the books I want to read and filling years as I can, but I also have a notebook with a page per year to note possible titles that I’ll use when I need to.

  2. You never seem to see these sort of books in second hand shops any more – it’s just (unfortunately!) the last few Richard and Judy selections! Totally rubbish, I think!

  3. I agree with crimeworm.I have given up looking in charity/secondhand shops for gems.It is such a shame.I think some charity shops bin odd or older books in favour of new paperbacks which can be read from the library for free.

    • I’d love to find some Golden Age crime (not originals, obviously, but from the 70s or 80s) – even some Ross MacDonald books, but it’s the same tripe in every shop – sometimes more than one copy of each book. I remember all of the elderly widows and unmarried women in our tiny village had tons of books. And they all took a broadsheet every day, and loved doing the crossword. Of course, nowadays you’d be told not to go in anyone’s house, probably quite rightly! But it was a tiny village on the Isle of Mull – so quiet!
