I haven't done one of these posts in about a month. Slightly embarrassed by the number of books I've bought! Though loads of the American ones and a couple of the Canadians were picked up for two or three dollars each from Amazon's 'bargain books' section, the David Benioff came from Poundland, the US hardback of We Need to Talk About Kevin is currently £3.99 from Postscript Books... so it's not quite so bad, but still

Oh, and the Richard Flanagan is brilliant! ()

I just picked up 'The Goldfinch' myself. Hoping my expectations aren't too wild.

Poundland keep having some fantastic bargains recently - this morning I picked up a hardback copy of Péter Nádas's Parallel Stories for a quid. Cover price: £35! They also had in hardbacks of Philip Sington's The Valley of Unknowing, Richard Ford's The Lay of the Land, I.J. Kay's excellent Mountains of the Moon, Andrew Motion's Silver: Return to Treasure Island, David Benioff's When the Nines Roll Over, Bernardo Atxaga's Seven Houses in France and a few others I can't remember. Well worth a look if you have a local branch.

I like it when books are also toys.
