I put up one of the Billy bookshelves in the bedroom, all by myself! Am v pleased with myself :) The next stage is to start filling it with boooooooks, including the four I bought today.

I've been avoiding bookshops to avoid spending too much money but today I was in need of retail therapy and distraction. I was also brutally mugged by the 3 for 2 table in Waterstones. I've trained my in-laws to buy me book tokens because, while if pushed, I can come up with a list of books I would like, I can spend a happy time wandering round a bookshop and find twenty books I would never have expected. Last time I was in Waterstones, I came across a book called Lancashire - Where Women Die of Love. Frankly, I'm unconvinced (and I have got lost several times in the industrial wastes of south Lancashire) but you have to respect such a cracking title. (For more info, there's an extract here.) Unfortunately, that wasn't visible this time.

Edit - Following the recent "Christmas present" posts by a few people, that was not intended as a hint.
