message 1: by Kass (new)

Kass | 16 comments For many years I owned the book I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith and never read it. Then I moved many times and the book was sold at a garage sale. Last year I stumbled across a review of the book and would now love to read it, but I cannot find a copy anywhere. Since joining this site I have seen it referenced a few times, in other media as well, it is haunting me. I need to find this book, it's become an obsession, and then hope it lives up to the hype I have created around it.

Okay this is getting weird now - I just followed a link from the Buffy, Angel and Roswell thread and came across this book again in a list of someone's favourite reads.

Carolyn (seeford) | 67 comments Hi Kass! I have this list on my tbr shelf as well, but I've never owned a copy. Just did some searches online and it looks like the Dymocks in Melbourne has an edition of this in stock in the store, and they have a couple editions available online. Oh, and I don't know what their lending policies are, but the Victoria Library in Melbourne has two copies listed as available as well.
Hope this helps!
Happy Australia Day!

Thankyou for the heads up. I should have tried ringing around rather than visiting every bookshop within a 20k radius :) I will give Dymocks a call tomorrow, see if they will send it to a store closer to home.
