I went to my local Waterstones on my day off and had a browse! I ended up buying “Always the Bridesmaid” by Lindsey Kelk:

"Always the Bridesmaid" by Lindsey Kelk

“Always the Bridesmaid” by Lindsey Kelk

I know it sounds like a trashy romance novel, but I like her “I Heart…” series and I fancied something light hearted for a change!

Other bookish things:

My June Reading Challenge 2015 ended this week, although I didn’t complete it! My progress:

  1. Finish reading at least 2 partly-read books – Unsuccessful!
  2. Read at least 2 unread books (and finish them!) – 2 done!
  3. Re-read at least 1 book which I haven’t already read this year – in the middle of 1!

Happy May Bank Holiday weekend!

I had to go into town stupidly early this morning, so after I’d done all my errands I decided to go into my local Waterstones and have a browse! Last weekend, I popped in but only managed about 5 minutes because my car parking ticket was about to run out so I had to cut it short! But today I timed it well and spent a bit longer in there!

Waterstones have a whole selection which is Buy One Get One Half Price, so I had a look through the books on offer and decided to buy these two books!:

I’ve read Caitlin Moran’s two books “How to be a Woman” and “Moranthology” before, and I read her columns occasionally, and I was intrigued by “How to build a Girl”, so I thought I’d give it a go!

I’ve never heard of Rufi Thorpe before but I was intrigued by the plot of “The Girls from Corona del Mar” which explores female friendship and thought it sounded interesting.

I realise this was a rather female-inspired book haul but never mind! I do still have books to read but I fancied some new books and you can never have enough books!

I was also impressed by the staff in my local Waterstones because the young chap who served me was really friendly and said “Enjoy them!” when he passed me the bag of books! They seemed extra friendly and helpful today too. I’m a little bit jealous of the staff being surrounded by books all day, and I’m still wishing I had been successful in my (many) attempts to get a job in a bookshop! But for now, I’m happy just being able to afford to buy books whenever I want!

Enjoy your weekend!

It’s Day 21 of my Bookish Photo-a-day Challenge! (Click the link for more information)

21. A Bookshop:
Waterstones Piccadilly, London

Waterstones Piccadilly, London

So, this is a photo of the outside of Waterstones Piccadilly, on Piccadilly in London. This is one of my absolute favourite places in London, which I have visited numerous times since I discovered its existence! It is huge, with 6 floors of books, a café, a bar, a stationary section, and a Russian bookshop. As it’s on Piccadilly, one of the busiest streets in London, it has a bus-stop right outside which is helpful for getting home when you stay in the shop until closing time – 10pm most nights of the week! It’s easy to spend many hours in there!
