Books bought - second hand from the Marie Curie shop in town:
North & South - Elizabeth Gaskell
In a sudden attempt to diversify from Dickens, this seemed too good an opportunity to miss!
The Crow Road - Iain Banks
The Business - Iain Banks
(I listened to a podcast featuring Iain Banks the other today and he came across as such an interesting and likeable person. I read The Wasp Factory a few years ago and found it fascinatingly different to anything I'd ever read, but then never read any others. I've decided its time to change that!)
The Robber Bride - Margaret Atwood
(I read The Blind Assassin on my honeymoon and really enjoyed it. Whenever I think of the story it immediately reminds me of the holiday and the beautiful place we stayed by Lake Michigan, so this will be one of my holiday reads this year)
