Acquisitions and a Meme

Last week was really bookish.  I had two chances to pick-up reads to borrow and reads to keep.

On Thursday I went to the library, I picked up a copy of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s collected sonnets, a vegan cookbook, a cookie cookbook, The Paris Wife by Paula McLain, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley, and And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie.

Saturday I accidentally ended up in the local charity bookshop (how did that happen?!).  For less than $10 I picked up:

Iris: The Life of Iris Murdoch by Peter J. Conradi

The Worshipful Lucia and Trouble for Lucia by E.F. Benson

a 1903 children’s poetry book in EXCELLENT condition

Now time for a bookish meme……

I’ve seen this all around the blog-o-sphere, but it originated with Simon over at Stuck in a Book. 

The book I’m currently reading…

The last book I finished…

The next book I want to read…

The last book I bought…

The last book I was given…

Okay, booknerds, time to play along… gimme five books….



  1. Yummy books! I totally want to read the Alan Bradley series. I'm lusting after those hardcore. The covers are just too good to pass up.

  2. I hope you are enjoying Little Dorrit! It's one of my favorite Dickens. And I need to check out that Penman; I hadn't heard of it before.
