I was in a charity shop a couple of days ago, and I saw a copy of Paul Scott’s The Jewel in the Crown, the first book of the Raj Quartet, for sale. I thought I’d have a go at reading it – I have vague memories of the television series, and I suspected I’d enjoy the book.
Then I saw the price. Paperbacks 69p. And it was also “buy one get one free.”
The entire Raj Quartet for £1.38.
