Old Tin


I spent some time in the attic yesterday, looking for the box with the Science Fiction books in it. After about 45 minutes of searching, I can confidently say that it could well be up there or we might have just given the books away to charity.

Hmm, I wonder if I could complete my own set by buying some?
