Authors from my childhood

Posted on 11 July 2009. Filed under: Buying Time | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I’ve recently picked up a box of books to sell. Some of them have been written by fabuloso authors from my childhood and I’ll be very excited to re-read some of them before I list them, it’s going to make for a very slow listing process.

One of my favourite books of all time is Gobbolino The Witch’s Cat by Ursula Moray Williams. It’s truly a wonderful book, I always loved the idea of a talking cat who was also a witch’s cat. What I didn’t was was that she wrote 60 books. I’ve just done a little research, something which is so much easier now than when I was young, to find this out.

One author who totally fascinated me is Rumer Godden, author of An Episode of Sparrows. I currently have other books by her listed for sale and when I find time I’ll be reading Mouse Time and The Diddakoi and will give a review and a brief run down of Rumer.

There’s some Susan Cooper in the box who is always good value.

Another of my favourite books of all time is Carbonelby Barbara Sleigh. Another book about witch’s and cats. Is anyone detecting a theme here?

Having carefully not mentioned Astrid Lindgren or L.M. Montgomery I’ll finish this blog by guaranteeing they will all be listed on my website for selling and they will NOT find their way onto my shelves.
