Where to buy books: Part One - Charity Shops

Some of the best books I have ever read have been found in charity shops.  Three brilliant reads found in my local Oxfam shop were:

Past Mortem by Ben Elton - a deliciously dark murder mystery in which the past comes back to bite!

Empress Orchid by Anchee Min - an enthralling and fascinating fictional insight into the dangerous world of the Chinese emporer, his wives and his many, many concubines.

Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami - an urban and unusual love story. 

Charity shops do sometimes require grit and determination but they are worth it!  I shall revisit this feature later when I venture out to inspect some local book shops ...
