For the past two weeks I’ve been featuring books that were purchased through eBay from a rather splendid chap called Otis who resides in the U.S. (here & here). This week is the turn of the heavyweights amongst my final selection, four hardbacks.
I don’t often buy these particular versions of novels preferring instead the cheaper and more readily available paperback editions. There’s also much more in the way of choice of cover artwork too but when these four beautifully wrapped titles appeared on my iPad screen, I knew I’d have to buy them. Here they are then in all their glory, let me know your thoughts via the comments as always.
