The Third Secret by Steve Berry started that this morning. Not bad.

You little swine, you. It was you, wasn't it, that got the copy off eBay last night. :p

I was waiting until the last minute but got distracted by that nonce wanting us to do his coursework for him and missed on doing a bit of literary gazumping. :(

Selected Short Stories, Rabindranath Tagore
We, Yevgeny Zamyatin

I hope you'll both post your reviews when you're done!
(I'm working on one for Sunset Song)

I've read both Achebe novels now (No Longer at Ease 7/10, A Man of the People 8/10) and took notes whilst doing so. When I get time I'll review them.

Anyway, a trip to London included getting the following:

South of No North by Charles Bukowski
The File on H by Ismail Kadare
Envy by Yury Olesha
