Merry Bookmas

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and hope you all got loads of bookish gifts. I got this beautiful edition of Philip Pullman’s Trilogy.

New books - yes please

Had a wonderful trip to BelfastBooks store today. I picked up these beauties to add to my Robin Hobb collection. They have a mouth watering selection of books with lots and lots of epic fiction and fantasy – I’ve already planned my next visit. 9 more words
