I re-read Swish of the Curtain by Pamela Brown, which I bought in a new edition. I was thrilled to discover that this was a longer version than the one I had read previously, as the book must have been abridged at some point. I just bought a new copy because my old one was very tatty and finding almost an extra chapter was a real bonus. Will re-read Golden Pavements and Maddy Alone again too, which I also bought again, but I suspect they will be the text I have read before because I have early editions of those. They are bringing out Blue Door Venture too, which I have pre-ordered. I live in hope they bring out Maddy Again, which is the only one of the series I haven’t read, and which is going for £250 on the second hand market. Also re-read Lone Pine London by Malcolm Saville, in the recent (but original, unabridged text, Girls Gone By Publishing edition.)
March was also the month I very nearly reconstituted my collection of Misty comics which got lent and not returned (grrr..) many years ago. Only one to go!
