Pay day + Kindle = book binge.
I went a little bit nuts last night and bought 10 books for my Kindle. Well, at least I don’t have to worry about my bookshelves breaking under the added strain!
I have a long list of books I want to buy, and I crossed a good few of them off last night.
Here’s what I bought:
- ‘The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman’ – Angela Carter
- ‘An Artist of the Floating World’ – Kazuo Ishiguro
- ‘Essays in Love’ – Alain De Botton
- ‘The Master and Margarita’ – Mikhail Bulgakov
- ‘The Year of the Flood’ – Margaret Atwood
- ‘The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle’ – Haruki Murakami
- ‘The Monk’ – Matthew G. Lewis
- ‘The Wasp Factory’ – Iain Banks
- ‘The Sense of an Ending’ – Julian Barnes
- ‘The Complete Cosmicomics’ – Italo Calvino
Of these, I have previously read novels by half of them: Ishiguro, Atwood, Murakami, Barnes and Calvino. The others are completely new to me. Can’t wait to get started!
