Aren't they beautiful - not official Puffin Books merchandise but they do state 'Handmade in Devon' on the base.
These bookends and a couple of conversations on social media got me thinking about my abiding love for Puffin Books, both old and new. I clearly remember going to buy them as a child and they were instrumental in my voracious reading habits. Later as a teenager I moved on to the grey Penguin Modern Classics series, but Puffin Books have always still had a special place in my heart.
Anyway as a result of these musings and after a prod from Barbara from March House Books who writes so beautifully on her blog, I've decided to revive our own blog with the emphasis on sharing the types of books that I love - the ones that made me want to go into bookdealing in the first place.
If you want to share the books that you love with me please do make a comment below - I'd love to hear which books put a smile on your face, bring back lovely memories or make your spirits soar.
