This weekend I felt a particular need for some bibliotherapy. My sister just so happens to work a stones throw away from Waterstones Piccadilly and, as I was meeting her for her break, I proposed we meet there and delight in the bookish wonders together. I don't go to Waterstones Piccadilly much as I tend to hang out around Charing Cross Road and spend all my pennies in Foyles, so it made a nice change to get happily lost in a different bookshop. And, of course, I felt much better after buying three books I've had my eye on for some time.
He Wants by Alison Moore
After Me Comes the Flood by Sarah Perry
New Grub Street by George Gissing
My sister bought The Quick and To Rise Again at a Decent Hour.
Three cheers for bibliotherapy! Have you read any of these?
