Found at today‘s book sale:

I don‘t know how I didn‘t find this as a child but Lucy Mangan‘s book, Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading, made me want to read it!

rubyslippersreads Did you leave anything for anyone else at this sale? 😂 2w

Leftcoastzen Speaking of weird taste , I have been at book sales where I pull several books that belonged to the same person, known because of bookplate or address label .And I think I wish I knew this person, we have the same taste in books! 2w

Spotted these in a bookstore and I just love the covers! I'm not familiar with the stories though. Has anyone read these?

TrishB A definite read here. Had all these in illustrated versions - lost over the years. 2y

I'm going to double up here. Favourite children's book for #riotgrams and beloved location for #17booklove.

Because I always wanted to live in Milly Molly Mandy's village and this was my first book-map-love. ❤❤❤

Bookworm54 I loved Milly Molly Mandy! Though my mum hated the number of times she had to read everyone's names. 😋💕 2y
