But it was all right. As long as I stood well back from the shelves i could read the authors and titles. So I had to choose names that were familiar and titles that weren't.
I've ended up with Fannie Flagg's Can't Wait to Get to Heaven and Victoria Hislop's The Return. I've read lots of Ms Flagg's books and Victoria Hislop's first novel The Island was recommended to me (but they didn't have that).
I have a theory that in Swansea Library more books with authors who have surnames beginning with early letters of the alphabet are borrowed than those written by P. G. Wodehouse for example. Just because of the way it's laid out. By the time I get to H I am suffering from a surfeit of choice.
