A few more books purchased over the past couple of weeks:
- Mary Wolstonecraft – A Vindication of the Rights of Men & A Vindication of the Rights of Woman 50p
- Iain Banks – The Wasp Factory 40p
- Oscar Wilde – The Happy Prince 20p
- Ernest Hemingway – The Old Man and the Sea 99p
- Jeanette Winterson – Sexing the Cherry 50p
- Virago at 40: A Celebration 50p
- George and Weedon Grossmith – The Diary of a Nobody 50p
- Laurie Lee – Cider with Rosie 50p
- S.E. Hinton – The Outsiders Free (swapped with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland)
- Ross Raisin – God’s Own Country Free (swapped with Through the Looking Glass)
The last two came from a book swap we’ve had at work for the past week, and I swapped my individual copies of Lewis Carroll’s wonderful work, as I’ve also got an Oxford Classics edition with both volumes in one book.
Interestingly, the Hinton book is one that I recognised but didn’t know why, and eventually realised it’s because I’d seen it advertised on the Penguin Classics website. This, however, is a Puffin edition, which I thought was interesting, showing again that the distinction between children’s books and adult texts is often blurred. I feel that I should do a post about that soon.
