New book purchases!

I have just been very bad. I went to an opticians appointment and had the wrong time so missed it. As a result I decided to hit the charity shops and bought myself some books.
On Beauty by Zadie Smith
2001 A Space Odyssey by Arthur C Clarke
Beloved by Toni Morrison
The Little Friend by Donna Tartt
Had to stop myself from buying The Book Thief in Smiths, I may weaken tomorrow though. Now for an afternoon of adding my books to LibraryThing. I wish I had all my books here but the flat is so tiny I have to store some in my mums loft. I have lost track of all I own. Argh I want a house so I can have all my books!

Hi - Thanks for visiting my blog. Always so nice to hear from other book lovers! Sorry you had the wrong appointment but hey at least you were able to indulge in a little book spree! :) Can't wait to hear if you do go back and get The Book Thief.

Oh yes, The Book Thief is a must and lovely to find another bookaholic blogger out there. I took so long to read The Secret History, only got around to it this year, but I enjoyed it.
