Something New

Boot sale bargains and a first for me in the audible books stakes 

It is Sunday so once again SWMBO and I headed out to our local boot sale and today I was able to pick up a couple of bargains. The book cost me the princely sum of 50p and it has more than sufficient information for my needs for when I get to WW2 (again).

The audio book is a new one for me as I have never listened to one before! There are six CDs contained in the set and so the plan is to upload it to my iTunes account so that I can listen to it via my iPad on the train when I return to the city in July.

I suppose that it was somehow inevitable that my first foray into the world of audible books was The Seven Pillars of Wisdom given my interest in Lawrence of Arabia. I have a hardback copy of the Seven Pillars, a Kindle version, the film Lawrence of Arabia and the soundtrack so I guess this completed the set!

That book is very, very useful and an absolute bargain at 50p!

Hello there Steve J,

It was one of those books that I have been meaning to get for sometime but it always dipped below the acquisition radar - mainly I suppose due to current interests being elsewhere than WW2. I was very pleased to get it - it is very good condition with only some slight ‘sunning’ - and as you say, at 50p an absolute bargain!

All the best,

Hello there Ray,

I am now up an running in terms of boot sales acquisitions for this year and it was a very promising start!

I have dropped you an email by the way.

All the best,
