Okay, so I'm weak willed. I'll admit it.
I know I do not need a fourth copy of Charles and Mary Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare. I know.
But tell me honestly - would you have been able to walk past this gilt edged beauty if you were the one to spy it in a second-hand bookstore near where you live? Well? Would you?
It's in perfect condition. The binding is tight, there is almost no foxing, and it has beautiful illustrations. In colour. Swoonly swoon. I mean to say.
What do you think I am?
I've just discovered that there's a companion volume of Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress. I'm sure I need that too. Quite sure.
Unless any of you can convince me that I really don't need a ninth edition of that book.
Good luck with that.
