Today I got off work early and went browsing into charity shops near my workplace. I walked into Thames Hospice charity shop and found this lot sitting on the top shelf.
The first thought that came to mind is that I love Rebecca and would like to read other Du Maurier titles, but not sure if I want to read all of them! Then I thought, it does look very good on my shelf (or sofa) doesn’t it?
and so.. I bought all 10 Du Maurier titles that are available with a great, great bargain. The shopkeeper said they sit on the shelf for about 10 minutes until I snapped it up.
Doesn’t it look great? Now whenever I’m ready, I’ll head up to Daphne Du Maurier Challenge and sign myself up!
What about you? Do you read any of Du Maurier’s books? If so what do you think of them?
I haven’t read nearly enough du Maurier, honestly, only Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel and Frenchman’s Creek (I believe). But I’ve enjoyed all the ones I’ve read, and I love your new matching set of her books!
Hi Jenny, thanks for stopping by! You read more than anyone else who reads Du Maurier’s novels and I hope to enjoy all of it! I think they are matching too, that’s why I bought the whole lot of them!! 😀
I ve read rebecca and Jamaica inn ,got the same copy of rebecca it was a present from my brother .I like her work read them both after seeing the films for the books I intend at some point to maybe read a couple more she is very good at atomsphere ,all the best stu
@Stu, I didn’t expect to like Rebecca that much, but I did. So if I read a few more and like it, she’ll be include in my writer’s hall of fame! 😉
What a great find!!!-congrats and happy reading
Ooh, fantastic find, you’re so lucky! 🙂 I’ve read Rebecca of course and absolutely loved, and I’ve read some of her short stories which were great as well, very atmospheric and suspenseful.
I want to read Jamaica Inn soon, it sound so good 🙂
@Bina, please do Bina… I would love to hear what you think of them! 🙂
I’ve read The Flight of the Falcon, Echoes from the Macabre, Kiss Me Again Stranger, Don’t Look Now, and Rebecca. They were all great! I’m hoping to pick up a copy of Rule Britannia sometime soon. I can’t wait to read them all. Cool collection. You’re going to love it!
Bijeto, it seems you are Daphne biggest fan! Did you try Jamaica Inn? It’s great as well. I’m will try to read Frenchman’s Creek and My Cousin Rachel next.
I am so very green with envy!
You shall collect the new edition (2011) of My Cousin Rachel! It is on hardcover. It is selling in UK.
I’ll give it a pass. I’m happy with this collection.
