Anyone else here who immediately makes a beeline for the books section whenever they're in a charity shop? I LOVE looking through the shelves and seeing what I can find. I was actually introduced to one of my favourite authors by doing this: I picked up a book called "The Little Friend" on a whim - the cover interested me and the reviews printed on the back were pretty good, and even though I'd never heard of the author (Donna Tartt!!) but decided I'd take a chance... anyway, I loved it, and through it came to read The Secret History which is, of course, a modern classic and which is one of my all time favourite novels I pick up loads of second hand books for my children, too. Anyone else have any similar stories?
