I just can't help myself - I love to own books - the old-fashioned kind - made out of paper.
Yesterday's purchase from the State Library of New South Wales Shop is therefore appropriate. From their bargain table I picked up The World of the book by Des Cowley and Clare Williamson for $29.95 instead of $40.00.
It's a paperback in A4 size with nice heavy paper and lots of lovely colour illustrations. Until I dip into it I can't vouch for its quality but it looks and feels nice. Owners of this title over on Librarything may have more to say about the quality of its content.
