Books bought in 2010...

This little lot is actually the smallest number of titles I've managed to accumulate in any one year since 1969:

Large mystery

Mind you, I shudder when looking back at 2010. That was the awful year of the great central heating replacement upheavals. All the radiators, all the pipework under the floorboards, a new boiler, a water softener, new carpets and floor coverings. And 178 cartons (mostly of books [of course]) to be packed, moved out into the self-storage place a mile or so away, then brought back and unpacked after Brian the Plumber and a variety of carpet and flooring fitters had all had their costly way with me :-)
