Congratulations, Manda! I hope you enjoy The Blank Wall as much as I did. Please contact me at gudrunstights(at)gmail.com with your shipping address.
I recently got a raise at work after not having had one for a few years. I'm not sure why, but this propelled me to go on a little book buying binge, like I needed to use up all my extra funds to buy, buy, buy more gorgeous books! I spent the most money on a small collection of the hardback Penguin Classics designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. I've coveted these forever. I plan to buy a few more over the next couple of months to grow my collection because they are just so pretty.
The other books I bought are all paperbacks:
The Priory by Dorothy Whipple - a must read after I so enjoyed Greenbanks last month.
Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon - my first novel from the Penguin English Library series.
The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton - a new-to-me Wharton to celebrate the 150th anniversary of her birth.
Manhattan, When I Was Young by Mary Cantwell - a book recommended on this Mad Men reading list.
Peyton Place by Grace Metalious - an impulse purchase I hope was worth it.
I am so in love with all of these beauties. Have you fallen in love with any books lately?
