Recently, whilst Blurking!!, I found a few book titles I thought I might like, jotted them down on a scrap of paper and headed off to the library. Imagine my horror when I found out that none of the books on my list were in any of the local libraries. Something to do with most of them being from the USA or Canada.
Time to rethink the list. I can't remember which blog it was on but Dissolution by C J Sansom was mentioned and duly noted. A week later on World Book Day at school, I noticed that the Headteacher was reading the same book. Then the following week my Mum tells me a good book to read is Dissolution. Coincidence?
Another trip to the library only to find that the book is out and only book 4 is on the shelf. Now I don't know about you, but I like to read my Who Dunnits in sequence!! Determined not to break my New Year's Resolution of not buying books but using my local library (the only one I've ever stuck to), I resigned myself to waiting for the book to come back and take it out then.
