I’ve been away for the last few days, and what better excuse is there to buy a stack of new books? I’ll keep this haul short and sweet, as I have a monster haul coming soon!
I went to a town on the Central Coast of NSW called Umina, as I knew there was a second hand bookshop there. Once, I went to Ruby’s with my friend and we went a little bit psycho with the purchasing of reading material! This time, I was a bit more restrained, as the selection isn’t as good, which is a damned shame. They have a cafe there, so you can read your new purchases with a coffee and food.
From there, I bought:
I then moved on to the St Vincent De Paul shop a little further down the road. For the whopping great sum of $4, I purchased:
The book itself was $3, but I left a little extra.
Across the road I found a shop I’d never seen before. The Book Bazaar has a great selection of new books. It also has great staff who genuinely want to help you find a good book! It’s so rare these days to walk into a bookstore and be asked if you need help finding anything or to be able to ask the staff if they know about the books! I picked up:
Gone Girl- Gillian Flynn
I know I’m late to the Gone Girl bandwagon! I’m hoping to read that one soon.
I was unsure about “My Dear, I wanted to tell you”, as there is no decent blurb on the cover at all. I was really unsure of what exactly it was about, so asked the lady at the counter, thinking there would be no way she had read it. I was totally wrong! She was able to give me a quick synopsis, which was awesome, particularly as its an indie book!
I wish this store was closer to home, as her recommendations were awesome!
I’m currently reading:
Fangirl- Rainbow Rowell… not sure how I feel about this so far.
The Picture of Dorian Grey- Oscar Wilde. Which I unfortunately left at home, so haven’t been able to read it since Saturday!
