Ian Paganus de Fish A story:

On Wednesday, I browsed through one of my regular second-hand haunts in the city, mainly in pursuit of some philosophy books. I had to leave to go to a meeting, without buying anything. So I picked up my bag from behind the counter and left, feeling a little guilty.

At the time, I was half-way through "Nica's Dream", which is also about Pannonica, the subject of this book. My copy was sitting in my bag, so that I could read it on my bus trip. (I can get in and out of the city by bus for about 20% of what a car park would cost, which allows me more book money!)

The following Sunday, I decided that I wanted to buy one of the philosophy books, so I caught the bus back into town.

As I was flicking through the books, I noticed that, sitting on top of one row of books was "The Baroness", nowhere near where you would expect it to be placed.

I had to buy it, obviously, but I wonder what was going on? Did the jazz book gods place it there so I could find it? Does this happen to you?

Fionnuala Good story, Ian - the book gods on your side definitely.
Great links too - lots of photos in the first one. I think it's finally clear that Carol? is not Pannonica.
