Recent Treasure Acquisition


I bought books like a librarian on steroid. I found a very kind older Kiwi couple who had to sell their books after moving out to Bali. There, I found some of the best used books I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Their lovely traditional house was flooded by rows of books and two georgeous cats. It brought me back to my visit to Shakespeare & Co., back then in Paris.

Here are the treasure list:

Eva Luna (Isabel Allende)
Under the Tuscan Sun (Frances Mayes)
Picasso: Creator & Destroyer (Arianna Huffington)
Switch Bitch & Over to You (Roald Dahl) – beautiful vintage Penguin edition I may add
The Handmaid’s Tale (Margaret Atwood)
The News from Paraguay (Lily Tuck)
The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency ( Alexander McCall Smith)
One Hot Summer in St. Petersburg (Duncan Fallowell)
Shogun (James Clavell)
84, Charring Cross Road (Helene Hanff)
Sea of Poppies (Amitav Ghosh)

...and to think that my to-read list in goodreads shows 123 books. Tsk.
