This has been a week of job hunting (with occasional forays into second hand shops for some sneaky purchasing), rather than a week of reading. Certainly not a week of reading for pleasure at any rate. It started well with a visit to Uppingham which has two particularly good second hand book shops - Forest Books, and The Rutland Bookshop. The Rutland Bookshop is a thing of wonder. A tiny little building on 3 floors absolutely crammed with an amazing selection of books, some on subjects I couldn’t even have conceived of. They had a particularly fine selection of early 20th C hard backs – the sort with the especially decorative covers, and had I been feeling flush I would have bought armfuls of them.
