I ordered The Painted Veil by Somerset Maugham and The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy (after Bina's rec) from BD yesterday.
I hope you´re going to enjoy The Dud Avocado, can´t wait to hear your thoughts on it!
Will definitely let you know what I think, it sounds great!
Today I bought Nikki Greenburg's graphic novel adaptation of The Great Gatsby. I've had my eye on it for ages but it was quite expensive and I've only now just cracked and bought it. All the characters in it are sea creatures.
Also wanting: Travels with my Aunt by Graham Greene and My Cousin Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. And I want the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel to finally arrive from BD! The wait is killing me!

Thank you! It wasn't, I just accidentally stabbed myself with a pair of scissors, and the doctors had to cut it more open to fix it or something like that. Not gross at all
Maybe just a bit gross...
I bought some second-hand books last Saturday: Catch-22 by Joseph Heller Ethan Frome by Edith Warthon Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl A Room with a View by E.M. Forster Amrita by Banana Yoshimoto I spent 7,50€.
