Yesterday, the twelfth anniversary of her passing, I posted about the books in my collection of items on Diana, Princess of Wales. As thrifty finds, was a list of the ones bought at local thrift stores. At least eight others are books from my swap club –Paperback Swap, which includes both softcover and hardcover books as well as audio books.
Yesterday’s mail brought my latest acquisition through Paperback Swap.com: Style at Home by Mary Carol Garrity. This adds to several other books on home and garden I gotten through the swap club: Here are the Diana books I’ve received over the past year and a half:
A Royal Duty by Paul Burrell Death of a Princess: The Investigation by Scott Macleod, Thomas Sancton Diana: Closely Guarded Secret by Ken Wharfe Diana's Boys: William and Harry and the Mother They Loved by Christopher Andersen Shadows Of A Princess: An Intimate Account by Her Private Secretary by P. D. Jephson The Bodyguard's Story: Diana, the Crash, and the Sole Survivor by Trevor Rees-Jones, Moira Johnston The Diana I Knew: Loving Memories of the Friendship Between an American Mother and Her Son's Nanny Who Became the Princess of Wales by Mary Robertson The Way We Were: Remembering Diana by Paul Burrell
I joined Paperback Swap.com. in fall 2007. The system has over 1,800,000 hardcover and paperback books available. Membership is free and only requires you to post a list of your own books to be swapped.
A related free swap group is SwapaDVD.com, which has you list DVDs you no longer want and choose DVDs you do want from those posted by other members.
I found one DVD that I’ve added to the collection – The Queen, starring Helen Mirren. The film is centered around the time of Diana’s death in 1987. Enjoy your day. Thanks for stopping by, and do leave a comment.

Welcome to Oak Rise Cottage, the Home of an Incurable Collector!
In this blog I will be sharing my ventures into the worlds of a collector with multiple enthusiasms. At Oak Rise Cottage there are collections such as items with pineapple motif, blue and white dishes and fabrics, tablesetting components, books in both regular and miniature editions, fruit motif items, Christmas holiday accessories, and so on...The pineapple evokes a hostess' love of sharing house and home with family and friends. Guests to Oak Rise Cottage share the collector's bounty -- based on my view that the house should express the personality and interests of the owner.
