Book Heist (Haul)

17:00 Hannah - 4 Comments

Ahoy! 

Recently I discovered that my library was getting rid of a few books and I thought this was ok. However, when I went in to nose about, I discovered that they were in fact BINNING books that are in perfectly acceptable condition. Nope. Not acceptable. I thought. So like a cat to a catnip I pounced in a jumped up craze that got me a few funny looks. I'm cool with that. 

Also, apologies for not posting in a while. My life's a mess and it's being reflected on my blog.

1) Come to Mecca (Farrukh Dhondy) 
A collection of short stories set in multicultural London. It focuses on the struggles of black and Asian people trying to live in a racially prejudiced society.

4) Crime and Punishment (Fyodor Dostoyevsky)

5) Selected Edgar Allan Poe 
This is the only book I got in the past month that wasn't from the library ^_^

What books have you acquired recently? Have you read any of these?
