bookshop haul

Out in the sticks live gigs are hard to come by, so Eb and I are trying to make a conscious effort to support any half decent musician that comes to town. (Then maybe more will play for us). So we dropped by the bookshop today to purchase tickets to Lior at the conservatorium. Hooray. Whilst there we picked up a few books too. A couple of classics and a contemporary Russian novel. I hate to generalise but every Russian author I have read is outstanding.

Call me consumerist but lately I have been having trouble getting through novels I borrow from the library. Maybe the time pressure is the issue, or maybe the fact that a book is mine and gets to sit on my shelf for the rest of eternity makes it more compelling. Anyone else have this issue?

You may
recognise the fabric that I covered that floor cushion with.

I'm so jealous...I love Lior!

I'm with you about the Russian authors - well at least the ones we get to read here. They seem so intense and right on the money.

Have fun at Lior - wish he was coming to my town.

i agree. to own the book you've finished is like having a trophy.
