Clunes 2013

As we did this time last year, we visited Clunes Booktown this past weekend, and here is what we found:
  • Eloise Wilkin's Mother Goose - This is by the same illustrator as Baby Dear, which is one of Galilee's favourite books at the moment.
  • The Singing Tree by Kate Seredy - Our first purchase of the day. Kara loved it as a child.
  • Selected Essays by G. K. Chesterton
  • The Round Table (Essays on Literature, Men and Manners) by William Hazlitt
  • Sailing the Wine-dark Sea: Why the Greeks Matter by Thomas Cahill - John really liked Cahill's How the Irish Saved Civilization, and was pleased to discover that he decided to make that volume one of a series on "the hinges of history".
  • John Bunyan: The Tinker of Bedford by William Deal
  • Pages of English Prose - This is a book from 1930, with some pages still uncut.
  • Freddy Plays Football by Walter R. Brooks - Kara looks forward to reading another story about the Renaissance Pig. She was introduced to these books by her good friend, Tiffany.
  • The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-town America by Bill Bryson
  • The Wicked Day and The Hollow Hills by Mary Stewart - Kara has enjoyed mysteries by Stewart, and decided to have a look at her fantasy.
  • The Little House and Katy and the Big Snow by Virginia Lee Burton - Some more of Kara's childhood favourites.
  • Till I End My Song: A Gathering of Last Poems
  • Locating Renaissance Art by Carol M. Richardson
  • Jamie's America by Jamie Oliver - We were very happy to find this one, since the copy from our local library has gone missing.
  • The West and the Map of the World by Matthew Richardson
