Forgot I owned: Band of Brothers and Tom-All-Alone’s #bookaday
June 7, 2014
When you’ve got a lot of books, sometimes there are a few things you forgot you even owned. It’s the book-lover’s curse. Rob has found his copy of Band of Brothers by Stephen E Ambrose and Kate unearthed Tom-All-Alone’s by Lynn Shepherd.
Rob: After watching the television show, I immediately went out and bought Stephen E Ambrose’ book. In the build-up to yesterday’s D-Day’s commemorations, I almost purchased it again by accident.
Kate: Rob ordered me this copy of Tom-All-Alone’s after I heard it being discussed on other book podcasts – I thought this might be my way in to finding Dickens a bit more interesting. However, it sat on my shelf until I rediscovered it the other day as I was having a tidy-up! Hopefully I’ll get around to reading it soon.
