As a reward for myself I decided to buy some books. The accountant in me makes me a bit of a tightwad, so it's kind of a big deal when I buy new books. Here is what I purchased.
|I'm in love with the Vintage Classics books.|
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde--I've been wanting to read this forever, and I've read wonderful things about it on so many blogs.
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell--I've read some raving reviews of this one (and a few that disliked it). I have yet to read anything by Gaskell, so I thought I'd give this one a shot.
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith--I think this was one of the most frequent books on blogger's "Best Books of 2010" posts. I saw it everywhere, and from what little I know about it, it sounds like something I'd love.
|I think I'm last person on Earth to read these books.|
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins--I have heard such wonderful things about these books. When Amanda of The Zen Leaf mentioned that she'd read them multiple times, I knew I'd have to get my hands on them. I don't like buying modern books unless I've already read them, but my entire library system only had book 1 and 3. Crazy, right? Oh well.
Have you read any of these? Which book should I read first?
This was a total splurge for me, which I'm sure sounds weird. I've learned that I'm an anomaly--a non-book-buying freak of the book blogging community. I'm okay with that. It's okay to tell me how strange I am. How often do you buy books?
