We found two books for sale at the carboot sales. Two hardbacks which will live on the coffee tables in the front room and be browsed and put back down over the new few weeks or months.
They cost two Euros each.
The book on the left is called A Rich And Rare Land. It contains Irish Poetry and Paintings. It's incredibly beautiful and one of the paintings is the of the Connemara Coleen with the goats which I posted a picture of on here a few weeks ago.
The second book is The Druids by Peter Bereford Ellis. He writes about the fiction and folklore of ancient Celtic society. Ireland has many ancient ring forts and stone circles. I have featured some of them like Drombeg here in West Cork on here.
Two very nice coffee table books.ReplyDelete
Thanks JayCee. The kind of books you pick up and put down and browse and read at your leisure. I seem to be something of a book collector and never have the heart to part with them. They are like old friends.ReplyDelete
I loved the carboots. Where else can you find such a vast array of things just waiting to be looked over?ReplyDelete
I agree Debby carboot sales are full of hidden treasure and a great place to find stuff to equip a flat or house very inexpensively.ReplyDelete
Coffee tables should be reserved for books about coffee.ReplyDelete
I wonder why they are called coffee tables? You could have tea tables and beer tables and even Vimto tables.ReplyDelete
You could also have times tables but most people would hate them.Delete
Interesting looking books. Our coffee table has just enough room left on it for us both to put our feet up, but then every flat surface in our house seems to be covered in books!ReplyDelete
Thanks. We have two coffee tables side by side. I even have books in boxes in the loft.ReplyDelete
