Charity shops are awesome...

I find it impossible to walk past a charity shop without going in and rummaging through the second-hand book section. Most of the books are normally nothing special: well-thumbed Stephen King paperbacks, the usual slew of John Grisham and Ian Rankin novels, etc. Occasionally you find some cool stuff though. 

For example, on a recent trip to York I wandered into a charity shop and dug around in the fantasy section, unearthing some 1980s editions of Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and Grey Mouser novels, complete with retro artwork. W00t. The fact that I'll probably never actually read them is not the point. ;)

I don't know why, but there's just something cool about these editions:
