Having devoured five of Alex Miller's novels this year, and with only one left on my shelves to read (Prochownik's Dream), I've ordered copies of his first four novels:



And also Joyce Carol Oates' latest (her fourth book of 2012?!):



The plan for next year is to buy a lot less and to try and get through more of those that have sat unread on my bookshelves for far too long, especially since many of my favourite reads of the past year were ones I have had for years and years (the aforementioned Alex Miller's Journey to the Stone Country, Ronan Bennett's The Catastrophist, Julie Orringer's How to Breathe Underwater, Sam Shepard's Great Dream of Heaven, Zeeba Sadiq's 38 Bahadurabad...). Should be cheaper too!

And lowering the tone again by several dozen notches (or whatever it is tones get lowered in)...

Look what I got for Christmas!



No books* but I do now own a copy of Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens!




* - apart from an ancient Penguin for the collection (Mr Fortune's Maggot by Sylvia Townsend Warner - I do already own a copy but it's been on my 'must read again one day' list since last reading her Kingdoms of Elfin.)

These arrived at Christmas:





Also, Brat Farrar and The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey - both of which I have already but these in a new edition so I can collect the entire series properly.

DVD's -

The Avengers [Assemble]
Richard III (Olivier version)
Parade's End (so I can finally watch the last episode)
A new copy of American Psycho (to replace yet another lost DVD... Stardust and Twilight-Eclipse have also gone missing this autumn)




But best of all - three tickets to see Dominic West, Anthony Calf and Carly Bawden this coming Friday
