A few more new books, ‘Reclaimed Books part 2’… and MORRISSEY!

I’ve had just a few more books since my last book-buying update, and have also picked up another from my parents’:

  • Milan Kundera-  The Unbearable Lightness of Being     25p
  • Jack Kerouac-  On the Road     25p
  • Hunter S. Thompson-  Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas     25p
  • James Doig (ed.)-  Australian Ghost Stories     £1

The last book in the photo, ‘In Cold Blood’ by Truman Capote, was the one I picked up from my parents. It’s the copy I had at A Level when we studied it in English, complete with my pencilled annotations on several sections. You may also notice that the first three books I had were insanely good value for money, especially considering one of these (‘On the Road’) is a book I mentioned in a previous blog as being one I’d really like to read.

Oh, and then there’s also this other new book that my other half purchased off Amazon and which arrived the other day…

OH YES! Morrissey’s ‘Autobiography’ is here! We are both extremely put out that he only book signing he is doing has taken place in Sweden, as we couldn’t get over there to go to it, and can only hope he may decide to deign the UK with his presence in the near future. Also, the matter of who is reading the book first has been solved in two ways: I’ve already begun to read Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’, and so want to read this first; my partner has been a lover of Moz since before I even knew who he was, and has found great comfort in his lyrics at many points of her life. Me: I just think his music is quite catchy and sounds good… However, the bit of the book I did have chance to gloss over is incredibly well written, and should make for an enjoyable read!
