End of Term Hauling, Part Four: Books (Sunday Book Nook #5)

It’s the final part of my haul, boo! From now on, I’m on a no-spend for a month, which will be a bit miserable, I think, but should hopefully make up for this little lot… (Part One, Part Two, Part Three)

I’m going to try to make a little bit more of an effort to read, at least during the weekend, and so I have created a “Sunday Book Nook” weekly feature, which will hopefully force me to carve out a little book-related time in my week, even if it’s just a photo of the stack I’ve acquired that week.
