Unlike April, May was a great book-buying month! I was able to buy 11 books – 7 brand new ones, and 4 second-hand ones.
Most of these I wrote about in an earlier post, about my ever-growing pile of “to-be-read-soon” books.
- The Familiar, Volume 1 – Mark Z. Danielewski – So, remember the distraction I talked about in my last post? Well, this is it!
- Journey to Portugal – Jose Saramago – A non-fiction travelogue through Portugal, written by a native.
- All the Names – Jose Saramago
- The Cave – Jose Saramago – Sort of currently reading.
- Brighton Rock – Graham Greene
- All the Light We Cannot See – Anthony Doerr – 2015 Pulitzer Prize winner.
- The Pilgrimage – Paulo Coelho – Just finished reading, and will post review soon.
- Kokoro – Natsume Soseki
- Murder on the Orient Express – Agatha Christie
- Tom Jones – Henry Fielding
- The Mill on the Floss – George Eliot
I didn’t realize I bought so many Saramago books this month. Don’t know when I’ll actually read them all. Oh well, there’s nothing wrong with stocking up for a rainy day, right?
So, how was your book buying coming along?
