My fiancé and I went on holiday in Brighton for a few days. I have to admit I went a bit crazy in the charity shops. If a book is 75p or a pound (maybe two pounds or only 50p), how can you resist it?
Needless to say, I can’t.
So, here are the books I bought second- hand or a-lot-hand in Brighton.
- Emma Donoghue: Room
- W. Somerset Maugham: Don Fernando
- Jim Crace: Harvest
- Evelyn Waugh: Vile Bodies
- Hermann Hesse: Siddhartha
- John Williams: Butcher’s Crossing
- Lionel Shriver: We Need to Talk About Kevin
- Junot Díaz: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
- Ira Levin: The Boys From Brazil
- Mark Haddon: The Red House
- Paul Harding: Enon
- Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express
- Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders
- Agatha Christie: Death on the Nile
- Agatha Christie: Five Little Pigs
Seventeen books. I know, it’s a lot. But I don’t really care because they were all really cheap and most of them have been on my wish list for a very long time.
Seen anything you can recommend me to read first?
