I am quite lucky I live near a couple of 2nd hand books shops and charity shops. The quality of books found in these places are quite good and often I find books which are on my wish list. I can only assume that the people have Surrey have great reading tastes ;) Of course this also means that I have to buy them when I see them as they might not stay there for long. A couple of weeks ago I saw Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell which I didn't buy at the time, when I went back in there today it had been sold.
Here are the books I was lucky enough to pick up over the last couple of days.
Perfume by Patrick Suskind – The idea of this book sounds very intriguing to me.
The Reader by Bernhard Schlink – I have the film recorded but want to read the book first. For some reason the previous owner has underlined certain passages in pen.
The night Watch by Sarah Waters – I was very pleased with this find after just finishing Fingersmith.
The shadow of the wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon – For some reason this edition has the American cover which I quite like.
Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann – The best bargain of the lot, £2 for a hard back edition. I had to throw out the cover sleeve as it looks like the previous owner spilt abit of coffee or something on it, but I'm not complaining as the book itself remained unscathed.
So there you have it, five more books added to my shelf all for under £10 (just)
