Yet More Books

The lady wife put petrol in the diesel Espace this afternoon, which has put a  bit of a downer on proceedings. It's now being towed back home by the AA (the car not the spouse) so that'll be a few quid down the drain, not to mention the £80 of unleaded that's buggered up the fuel system. At least it wasn't my fault, although by some tortuous marital logic, it probably will be.

Anyway, on a positive note, I picked up some excellent second hand hardbacks from the local bookshop and a new Osprey from Waterstones, all for less than £25. I'm particularly pleased with In Limbo: The Story of Stanley's Rear Column, which sounds a bit kinky (fnarr, fnarr) but is, I can assure you, entirely above board. The Osprey is also beautifully illustrated by Peter Dennis, who does the box art for Warlord amongst other things.

Nice :O)

  1. Not heard of the Stanley book before; it sounds great.

    My wife put diesel in our petrol car last year and I was told that the other way round is a much bigger job so good luck on that!
