Daisy Lane Books



I have been feeling rather uninspired lately. I hate to admit feeling uninspired, because if I could have it my way I would spend everyday being inspired.

However I had a wonderful day trip out the other day, and much said, when I am feeling down the one thing that will cheer me up no end is a second-hand bookshop.

It was the type of bookshop that has no real order, it’s all a little upside down and tatty (just the way I like it) shelf to shelf full of books, some old some newer. It’s no secret that I love the smell of old books.

It was run by a friendly old couple who still use paper bags instead of plastic bags- another thing I appreciate.



I managed to find a Jemima Puddle-Duck book for 50p and one of my favourite authors Jacqueline Wilson’s Midnight for £1.

I also later visited a Charity shop on the way home, and bought yet more books. Oh I know I am bad with books, but right now they are the only thing that seems to cheer me up.



I got more Jacqueline Wilson’s for 50 and 60p, I have been reading her books for over a decade and still can relate to her writing so much.



Then I uncovered this Brambly Hedge one. I am more a of a Beatrix Potter fan myself, and have an exciting post coming soon about just that, but I couldn’t pass this up at 75p. I just love the illustrations, and I remember one of my wonderful friends fondly talking about these stories♥

  2. Hooray! I wondered why you hadn't posted in a while.
    What a delectable bookshop! I love paper bags for purchases, such a nice touch.
    Jemina Puddleduck was my first Beatrix Potter book as a child and remains my favourite to this day.
    I've never read any Jacqueline Wilson and love the huge ethnic rings she wears on each finger, apparently she treats herself after each book is completed. Am I too old to read her stuff now? xxx
