Found my last missing World's End series book in the flee market yesterday, in good condition and only for 50p!   >5<

But...i just noticed there is a note on the first page: To Anne, Christmas 1976, Mom.  :o  AND the handwriting looks very much like my mom's! Honestly, how spooky is that! Felt shivers, i never had that book as a child.   >31<

I say!  :D Makes the book even more special! I remember taking years ago many old books to the flee market but i am absolutely sure i never had the Dickens series, and wouldn't have sold them, were my favorites as kid!  :)

I never read them as a kid, only read them for the first time a few years ago  :o  Great series, you can almost believe the children would live by themselves like that  8)
