Sale

Hodges Figgis has one of its sales on, when they drag out all the slightly odd and scruffy editions they keep holed away in some warehouse north of Finglas for 11 months of the year. For a compulsive book-buyer this sort of thing is difficult to resist, and as I have been splurging far too much of late, I was rather delighted with my restraint today. I picked up a Gore Vidal essay collection for 6 Euro, which according to my (very rough) calculation works out at two essays for the price of one cigarette. At such knockdown prices I’m acquiring cultural capital and saving my life at the same time.
