A load more books uploaded today - more of my mother's EJO's, some Winifred Finlays, some Armada Chalet paperbacks and many other books.
The reissued Daring Doranne by EJO (EJO Society £15) and Girls Gone By's Vicki in Venice by Lorna Hill and Peggy of the Chalet School by EBD (£13) will be here soon. I'm taking pre-orders for these now.
I've been adding quite a lot of books recently. I've started (finally) listing my mother's EJ Oxenhams, first editions and many with no other copy I can find online. There are still a lot to add.
I've also been adding some Noel Streatfeild adult titles (almost all inscribed by author, but most fairly musty); some Schoolgirls Own Library booklets; some crime and quite a few long out of print Greyladies and other reissues which I found in a box
There are also, of course, quite a few new reissues by Girls Gone By:
Mabel Esther Allan - The Adventurous Summer
E Brent-Dyer - Eustacia goes to the Chalet School; Problem for the Chalet School
Lisa Townsend - CS returns to the Alps and Difficult Term at the CS
Monica Edwards - No Mistaking Corker
Lorna Hill - Castle in Northumbria
Just to say that I've uploaded some books today and that there will finally be a catalogue in the next couple of weeks. It's at the printers' at the moment.
It was going along swimmingly as mentioned in the last update when I decided to alter something in the shelf-worn new book section. I thought it would be quick. Instead it took me a month on and off. Got halfway through, realised this but, by then, it was too late to go back. Nothing is ever simple :)
