Popped into Blackwells bookshop after work today to get the Curious Dog book (see here). Why is it that whenever you go into a bookshop you end up discovering all these others – and they’re books – and you’re like, me want, me want, me want…!!!

So I gave into temptation and bought Steve Augarde’s The Various too. However I also saw Follow Me Down and the third part of Kevin Crossley Holland’s brilliant Arthur trillogy, King of the Middle March … at least Christmas is just round the corner and I’ve just arranged to take those extra days off to give me some extra reading time. Yay!!

This of course leaves me with The Various, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, I Capture the Castle, The Gathering Light, and The Merlin Conspiracy amongst others on my to read shelf…
