I got a call from Beans over the weekend. He said he was in Edinburgh and standing outside the Children's Book Store that I'd "found" when I was there. And he wanted to know if he could pick up anything for me.
Several excited squeaks later, I was conversing with the store manager who was kind enough to take down all of my requests and said she'll figure out the best book-price combo for me. So, I'm now the proud owner of 10 new books! They include two Enid Blyton first editions (!!), some early edition hardbacks and an assortment of paperbacks as well. Beans will bring them over next month.
Seriously folks, how can I NOT love this man????
