Library book sale

My haul of books from the library book sale ...







Angel Falls: a South American Journey, by Martin and Tania Jordan (in need of a some attention with book tape). I couldn't find a picture of this one.

These cost me a grand total of £2.30 (under $5).

The 2000 Years book looks very interesting! Is it any good?

The 2000 Years book is ... OK. Kind of DK style, with nice illustrations but rather choppy, limited text. It covers 20 topics, each with a double page spread. The publisher, Lion, is Church of England (I think) and it shows in the sections about the Reformation - it isn't anti-Catholic, but it doesn't say much about the persecution of Catholics in early modern England. So far as I know it is the only recent book that surveys British Christian history for children, and even this one is out of print :(.
