You never know what you'll find at an op-shop!

Hear two of Australia’s leading political journalists, Steve Lewis and Chris Uhlmann,
discuss their latest work of fiction (or is it?), "The Mandarin Code"


Remember my blog about the TV series "Secret City" - click here - which is based on the books "The Marmalade Files" and "The Mandarin Code"? Well, after we'd finished at the pool this morning and while Padma was doing some more shopping, I whiled away the time at my favourite op-shop, and what should almost jump out at me from the bookshelves? A copy of "The Marmalade Files"! You never know what you'll find at an op-shop.


My op-shopped copy is price-tagged "$29.99 Cammeray Bookshop"
Read the preview here


Should I wait for its sequel,"The Mandarin Code", to become available at my favourite op-shop for $2, or should I buy it from booktopia at $28.95?
