My ‘Weekly Roundup’ is where I share the books I have received in the past week, whether bought, gifted, borrowed etc.
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury – a sci-fi classic I’ve been meaning to read for a while, this was a charity shop find – and it’s also the lovely 50th anniversary edition! Sadly, Ray Bradbury passed away just over a year ago, in June 2012. I enjoyed reading his The Martian Chronicles, but haven’t yet read any of his other works – this is next on the list.
- Serena by Ron Rash – I don’t often buy books brand new anymore. I’m trying to save as much as I can for my Masters, so second-hand books are much more affordable. However, if I think a book is really worth reading and I just want a copy of it, rather than hunting the charity shops I will occasionally just buy it brand new. I don’t know what it was about this book that drew me in – it just sounds really good, and is totally the kind of thing I want to read at the moment. Ordered from the Waterstones website.
