Here's what will be heading through my letter box soon...
My knowledge of history is horrifically sparse, so I thought I'd rectify the situation by doing a little reading. I've heard really great things about Fraser's works and that they read really nicely as well as being incredibly informative. I'm really looking forward to delving into this one.
Let's face facts, I couldn't not buy this. A collection of essays about owning, collecting and a life long obsession with books? Yes please.
This is one of those books that I've wanted to read for so long, but just hadn't got around to yet. So I figured buying it is one step closer to actually reading it, right?
After reading and adoring Crime and Punishment, I have wanted to explore some other Russian authors. I'm a cheapskate so I went for the Wordsworth edition, which I understand might not be the best translation. But C&P was also a wordsworth edition and I found it fine to read, although I did pick up on a teeny error. Still loved it all the same...
So what are you reading, loving, recommending at the moment?
Peace H xx
