I didn’t see the point in putting a new books post up for these months individually, as I’ve only had one or two each month. They’d have been pretty pointless posts. So the combined haul is as follows:
- Jack Kerouac – On the Road: The Original Scroll £3
- Aesop – Aesop’s Fables 99p
- Ken Kesey – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest 50p
- Fyodor Dostoevsky – Notes from the Underground 25p (library sale)
- Yevgeny Zamyatin – We 25p (library sale)
- Fred Wander – The Seventh Well 25p (library sale)
- L. Frank Baum – The Wonderful Wizard of Oz 75p
I mentioned in my review of On the Road that I was interested in reading the unedited version, so the discovery of this in a Waterstones’ sale was quite nice. Also, you may notice from a previous post that I already have a Penguin Classics version of We. However, I read this recently (expect the review at some point in 2017…) and couldn’t follow it too easily, so wondered whether a different translation may help.
Also, Penguin have recently released a series of ‘Little Black Classics’ as per their previous small classics ranges for notable Penguin anniversaries, and I’ve had a few of these (all 80p each). I’m sure you can read the titles for yourself:
Lastly, I have had more books than this over the past few months. I’ve purchased two poetry that I’ve forgotten to photograph:
- Seamus Heaney – District and Circle
- Simon Armitage – Tyrannosaurus Rex versus The Corduroy Kid
Along with these (and after these) I’ve also bought quite a number of Ted Hughes books to try and complete my collection. These have all come off eBay and the tax paradise of Amazon, but I’m still waiting for a few more to arrive, so will do a separate post on all of these in due course (privatised Royal Mail permitting).
