    Well I never got around to reading it before and it looked nice and shiny:

    aecx.images_amazon.com_images_I_51zcK2vWcrL._SS500_.jpg

    Also got hold of Heroes Die by MW Stover as it's constantly gotten rave reviews from a number of members of another forum :cool: Oh also Ishiguro's Remains of the Day was in the same order.


    Am going to go look for some historical fiction soon. Guess I'll need to finish Chickenhawk at some point even if it seems a tad technical in places.

    My collection of Penguin Great Loves arrived today, but the little box they are in is broken. Sad times. Also received Milton's Paradise Lost for my reading list.

    Something Wicked This Way Comes - Ray Bradbury
    Store had a sale on some classics soo:

    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest- Ken Kesey
    Pride and Prejudice- Jane Austen
    Wuthering Heights- Emily Bronte

    And the whole purpose of going to the book store was to get Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury but they didn't have it. So I got From the Dust Returned by Ray Bradbury instead

    Today I bought:

    A Farewell to Arms - Ernest Hemingway
    The Devil's Mode - Anthony Burgess
    The Hours - Michael Cunningham

    And my mum got me Baking: A Commonsense Guide for me for my birthday, and so far I've racked up £45 of book tokens. Add that to what I've already got and it looks like I'm going on a Borders trip when I get back to Glasgow. :D
