What is it about old bookshops that just make you want to go in and have a browse? Today my daughter and I went to Swanage to have a poke around the shops and I found these two books in a lovely old shop. The book by Ralph Wightman I got because he comes from Piddletrenthide and writes about his childhood there and my husbands family are from the village and I wondered if he may mention any of them in his early days chapter. It'll be a good read whatever. The second book is inspired by Border Reivers blogspot on 14th September this year when he says he was reading a book about birds which had alot of the old names for birds in it. I had forgotton all about it until I came across this little book today from 1936 and in the index were all these wonderful names. You should be able to see them better if you click on the pictures.
