I actually bought my copy for 10p but of course with £1.75 for postage added on. It's really long as well as you can see in the last picture, the book took me about 5 months to get through, though I wasn't reading it every night and sometimes could only bother to read a few pages!
I love books, and have a fascination with the 'Golden age' aka Audrey, Marilyn and Elizabeth Taylor. I know a lot of girls simply say they 'love' and are 'inspired' by these women yet know very little of them. In my case, this statement is completely true, I have watched a lot of their movies, read books on them and have numerous pictures and quotes from them. And not to mention, I cannot resist a well written book on an intriguing subject. My mum had always been a big reader, and takes every opportunity to remind me that ''by my age she had read over 400 books...'' but unfortunately during school time I don't have that much time to read a lot :( so I choose simpler books such as chick lit.
P.S - I also want to mention this great follower of mine who let me know in a sweet message that she has included me in her 40 day favourite bloggers post, and here's a link to her blog
