  1. I bought Jeanette Winterson’s “Powerbook” in the north Laines the other day and found this intriguing looking card with an even more intriguing text. So, of course, I had to go to the website and see if the story continues – and it does! And in installments! A haunting story which leaves you wanting more. Absolutely wonderful! And there I was thinking I had only acquired one book in Oxfam…


    • Thank you so much for posting and following. And congratulations on being first! Every person who finds a card and looks Fraughtfully up is a treasure! Here’s hoping these comments will create a trail of books with recommendations and inspiration for everyone. Meanwhile I shall get on with more cards and writing the sequel to Shadowman.


  2. I found this in a book in the Jubilee Library, can’t remember which one it was now, but am so glad I kept it and looked what it was.

  3. Yes, I found ‘Her Fearful Symmetry’ by Audrey Niffenegger’ at Cafe and Salvage in Hove! I’m so excited I found one! What a fabulous idea! I enjoyed the story card. Looking forward to reading more. Also looking forward to reading the book I found of course :-).


  4. I found one!!! It was found in the Cafe&Salvage. The book is called The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse! I look forward to reading it, what an amazing idea!!! Thank you.


    • I’m so glad you like it and that you posted on here. Thank you! Reading Dickens feels like coming home to me, the worlds he create are incredible in their level of detail and I find myself disappearing into them.
