It's not like her to steal a book from the library and boldly display it among her own. Of course, it does have a nice binding. Did she love it so much she just couldn't take it back? Or did she claim it was lost and pay for it? Or just stop using her library card? Maybe she bought it at a book sale because the library had more than one? Too late to ask now. She is gone. This book is just one more little mystery from my list of unasked questions.

  8. Maybe it was a library discard and not a stolen book, at all?

  9. I have a few ex library books bought second hand - but must admit to having two that I didn't return to a library before moving house.

    Perhaps that is what 'she' did too?

    A lovely mystery.

  11. Oh you do Magpie Tales? My very good friend Selma Sargent from Sydney regularly posts from Magpie as well! I even recognize Tumblewords back from when I used to participate in Sunday Scribbles and Writer's Island. Small world! =)

    And a fabulous piece at that - love that the mystery leaves me aching for more. ;)
