Although I have been buying books on and off, I realised I haven't done a book haul in months. I am trying to cut down on purchasing books and I know that - as all bibliophiles - I always say that and never keep my words but I have been partially successful this year. I have been avoiding secondhand bookstores like a plague and trying to pick more often from my largely unread library. I'm also starting to read off of my phone which isn't as painful as I thought it'd be.
These books were purchased at The Cancer Research Foundation Charity shop in Hounslow, London. BTW insane weather, even for you, London. When I went inside the store I was hot and sweaty and when I came out of the store, it was practically a thunderstorm. Anyway, the books were all 75p each and surprisingly they had a huge collection of travel books which are quite rare in charity book shops. The books are:
1. Sea of Poppies - Amitav Ghosh 2. Nana - Emile Zola 3. The Women at the Pump - Knut Hamsun 4. The Factory of Light - Michael Jacobs
