At my last book haul, I made a promise that I’ve actually kept! I vowed to only buy books if there was a new book out by one of my favorite authors. The very next day there was a newsletter from Goodreads and my eyes immediately jumped to the ‘New books by authors you’ve read’-part and spotted two books by authors I adore: A Wild Swan: And Other Tales by Michael Cunningham (author of The Hours) and Number 11 by Jonathan Coe. I ordered both at the Book Depository right away, and now they’re all mine! I was pleasantly surprised my the subtle beauty of both of them – A Wild Swan in particular.
For December my goal is to not buy any books at all, as my reading speed has slowed down a lot since the arrival of Mini Bookworm. But if I find some books under the Christmas tree, it can’t be helped 😉
