Recently Acquired Books

Nine more to add to the TBR pile. According to LibraryThing, that brings my total number of TBR books to 318 (or 309, according to my profile - I wonder where that discrepancy is coming from?). A good 6 years worth of reading there!

Chinua Achebe: Things Fall Apart
Albert Camus: The Outsider
Albert Camus: The Plague
Truman Capote: Breakfast at Tiffany's
Cervantes: Don Quixote
Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings
John Rhys: Wide Sargasso Sea
Patrick Suskind: Perfume
Lynne Truss: The Lynne Truss Treasury (With One Lousy Free Packet of Seed, Tennyson's Gift, Going Loco, Making the Cat Laugh)

I wish someone would keep me away from this bookshop! So much choice and such small prices!

You've got some good'uns there. I really enjoyed Perfume - it's very unusual.

Thanks Kell! I was reading the BCF's thread on Perfume before I went out and bought it. It seems to be one of those books that divides people into love/hate camps. I wonder which side I'll end up on?

I know it's childish but there's something about the name Lynne Truss that causes a silly grin very time

Kylie said...

:) Well, there's something about her writing that brings a silly grin to my face all the time. I'll have to remember not to take it on public transport with me (shouldn't be too difficult as it's quite hefty!)
