It’s not often I come home from a jaunt into town super excited about a book or books. Yeah, I go to the library every week, and by every, I mean EVERY week, and sometimes even more. The last time I think I got excited was several months ago when I found The Tale of Gengi and The Tale of Murasaki by Liza Dalby, author of East Wind Melts the Ice. I love Liza Dalby’s East Wind book and in it she mentioned both of the aforementioned books. That was a really exciting day because I have been wanting to read both of those books quite a lot.
Well, I think today topped the list of exciting days. (gifts of books don’t count)
I walked into my second hand store for cardstock and a pair of jeans, and instead, I walked out with a set of Jane Austen books sans P&P. (I can handle the lack of P&P because my father has a super fancy copy that is now ‘mine’) And here they are.Pretty, pretty books. Now which one to read first! I think I’ll start with Emma because that’s been one I’ve wanted to read for ages.
So, one of the best book shopping days ever!
