Book Haul # 8


“I’m gonna go into the bookshop but just to browse. I don’t intend to buy anything”, said no reader ever. I just can’t help myself. I have a problem but it is okay because it’s mine only – well, and also my parents’ and sisters’, who are going to be one day buried under all the books... but that isn’t really a horrible fate now, I think :P

So, as you can guess today I have another book haul. Both Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland editions have been on my radar for a while and once the one designed by Anna Bond came out I placed my order. But of course I took the opportunity to add some more books to my collection: The Brontë Series published by Vintage Classics and two titles by Salt (Jen Campbell is to blame for these ones since she's constantly praising Salt). The rest of them I got when I went to Pasajes looking for A Wild Swan and Other Tales by Michael Cunningham. This will most likely be my last book haul in a while. I might be travelling to Ireland next February to visit a friend working as an au pair there and I wanna save most of my money for that. Fingers crossed I can actually build enough willpower to get me through the next three tortuous months of not buying books.
