a box of desires

It’s time to grab a bunch more items off my mobile. The previous effort, attracted a good suggestion of texting to my LibraryThing account though I’m yet to do so significantly as that option relies upon the US amazon, which is unlikely to have everything I seek. Now if there were a texting option reliant upon Booko, that might be just the thing I need. I may perhaps explore the option of a post listing the books I’ve bought and there is, in my head, a post for the hunt for one particular item. Not to mention a post on the disappointing decision re cost of books in this country. As you can see from the booko links under each ISBN below, it’s fairly obvious that many publishers are charging the Oz audience a wee bit much. On to the list:
