So Many Books

 

To keep with my new vow to buy secondhand, I’ve hit up one of the local secondhand book shops for some new books. Actually, it’s more like my dad hit them up as I was stuck at home after a wisdom tooth extraction (details of which will never, ever be present here. I promise. I’ve been trying to forget it and it’s sort of working). Cue, the list:

 

  • Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • The Innocent by Ian McEwan
  • The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
  • Suite Francaise by Irene Nimrovsky
  • North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  • One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waugh
  • A Handful of Dust by Evelyn Waugh

Add to that, I’ve still got some on my bookshelf that haven’t been touched. What I would give to be able to speed read because I seriously just want to get into all of this. I guess I just have to take it one at a time because if I keep succumbing to my terrible habit of reading more than one each time, I’ll likely never finish. I don’t even want to think about how hard it’ll be to pick which one to read next or how to order all of them, really. One at a time. I’ll worry about it later. For now, I’ll just look as far as finishing Never Let Me Go… halfway finished and loving every page of it.
