Literally, a fire sale, selling sooty books. All these books were $1 or $2 from Elizabeth’s Books warehouse in Fremantle, which was the perfect opportunity to pick up a few classics that I’ve always meant to read as well as a few strays that caught my eye. Great for dipping into while on hols, especially for the 3-day train ride back home.

The Nation of Scotland and the Declaration of Arbroath, Historical Association (London)
The Duchess of Malfi, John Webster

Not a bad holiday reading swag. Not bad at all.
I’ll be back on deck from Wednesday arvo on, everybody. Refreshed and reinvigorated etc. I’ll catch up with the last few weeks of events then (ETA: extremely dodgy net access today/tomorrow, no Net on the train at all!)
