I picked up a few books at the secondhand bookshop in Mogo over the Easter long weekend. Mogo is a Victorian era gold mining town on the New South Wales South Coast, and very popular with day-trippers from the beach.
The bookshop is in an old building, and has a huge range. Here are two purchases I plan to review in the near future:
London as it might have been by Felix Barker and Ralph Hyde
My brother actually found this one, but I bought it because he wasn’t sure if he was going to buy it. Now he can borrow it if he wants!
It’s an amazing book, first published in the 1970s. Some of the plans from the nineteenth century look like they’re out of a steampunk movie.
Happily Ever After: Celebrating Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice by Susannah Fullerton
This one is a lighter read, and has some features about screen adaptations of Pride and Prejudice, but it’s such a pretty book.
