Books Galore

On Sunday I went and checked out the big clearance at Borders (thanks Alea!) and picked up four books--two hardcover--for twenty dollars. Then I opened up a huge stack of presents today that were mostly books! Here are some of the titles I now own:

The Royal Shakespeare Company's William Shakespeare Complete Works (I have a few of the plays in paperback from high school and college but wanted a good Complete Works)
The King's Gold by Arturo Perez-Reverte (The next in the Captain Alatriste series)
The Law and the Lady by Wilkie Collins
Basil by Wilkie Collins
The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
The Somnambulist by Jonathan Barnes
The Secret Life of Houdini by William Kalush (I've become interested in Houdini lately in regards to spiritualism)
The Fig Eater by Jody Shields
Pinkerton's Sister by Peter Rushforth
The Lying Tongue by Andrew Wilson

Add in a couple of review books that I received this past week and my TBR pile is *way* too big!

Almost able to build a house of books,


  1. Yay for birthday presents and books! You got a good looking stack - can't wait to read those reviews! Enjoy! =)

  2. Happy Birthday! What a great bunch of presents!

  3. Ooh, you have some good ones! I'm really into Wilkie Collins right now. The two you have look really good. I also have "The Somnambulist" which I've had on my shelf for waaay too long. Have fun!
