I thought I'd post a few pics of recent book purchases. I'm a terrible book buyer, seeming to be able resist anything except temptation. I do frequent charity shops, I will say that in my defense... and therein can be found some excellent bargains, cheaper even than eBay because no postage is involved of course.
The top four books here are all to do with WW2 and my interest in The Holocaust and the beginnings of Nazism. The Anne Frank is the newer uncut version so I'll be interested to reread that to see what was left out. And David Copperfield was £1.97 in Tescos! Bargin!
A couple of new ones here but mainly charity shop or eBay buys. I'm especially pleased with The Magic Apple Tree by Susan Hill. I read this years ago from the library. It covers a year in the author's life in rural Oxfordshire, has the most wonderful etchings as illustrations and is quite delightful. The two sci fi books are Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card because I plan to take part in the Cardathon challenge next year and Before the Golden Age 3 edited by Isaac Asimov. The latter bought because I have '2' and love it so much as it includes Tumithak of the Corridors and Tumithak in Swawm, two of my favourite sc fi short stories. So, I could hardly leave '3' on the shelf could I? The Freya Stark I bought because I know she's a classic travel writer but I've never read any of hers, so this book, The Lycian Shore will be a good starting point.
And these final two are the book pool for my RIP2 challenge... purely because I just couldn't resist taking a pic of them. I should probably get out more.
