You’re welcome to follow the BookAddiction blog, full of notes, hints and tips about books, book collecting, bookselling and a fair smattering of gossip and comment too. There are posts about particular genres of collecting, such as vintage school girl stories and leading crime thriller writers like The Fabulous Peter Cheyne, as well as more generic information for book collectors.
