It’s been a little while since I posted, sorry. The first couple of weeks are always really busy, but I think I’m just about organised now. I’m going to try to post twice, maybe three times a week from now on.
So, being back in Oxford means being back in bookland, and it was only going to be so long before being in libraries all day made me long for book buying! Add to that the fact that I just got a sort-of job with Blackwell’s, the big awesome Oxford bookshop, that gives me a 30% discount on all books, well, let’s make that ‘so long’ into ‘about five minutes’. Without any further ado, here’s what I’ve acquired:
From the £2 bookshop in town:
Sisters Red – Jackson Pearce
The Goose Girl – Shannon Hale
Listening to Britain – Paul Addison and Jeremy Crang
Oscar’s Books – Thomas Wright
Dracula – Bram Stoker (free)
Fairies and Fairy Stories: A History – Diane Purkiss
In Search of the Dark Ages – Michael Wood
Selected Poems 1923-1958 – E. E. Cummings
I’m so excited to get reading again! I’ll have to make some time, but I’m really looking forward to some of these. What should I read first?
