The ISBN number is not essential nor required on this forum. I mentioned it to show how old the book that I have is - I have an app that lists my books by ISBN, amongst others, so that I can keep a track of my TBR.  

 

Welcome to the forum btw

 

Thanks for clearing that up for me and thank you for the welcome 🙂

 

The book I’m reading at the moment -The Viper of Milan - is a very old copy. Some of the pages are crumbling when I turn the pages. It belongs to a library.

The Outsider - Stephen King.

 

Collecting this from my local library tomorrow. Never read any of Kings books, but have seen most of the films on which his books are based. I decided to borrow it, as I’m not sure I want to keep it permanently on my shelf!

I'm still on my Rupert Everett kick.  I just ordered his second novel, The Hairdressers of St. Tropez

I'll be interested to hear what you think of it - it's in the TBR pile.

I bought it in Sainsbury's for £3.50, which was what was putting me off Amazon's copy.   Yes, I'll let you know
