Wow! It's the end of the month already and I've only got three books to show you. But, this means I've been good and saving my money for the right books that I really do want to have on my shelves; so then, you can read the reviews - good or bad.
The first two books were purchased at the Brunswick Heads Markets in New South Wales on 2nd, January. It was a hot and brilliantly sunny day and I was dreadfully sunburnt when I bought these two great books. There's 'Danse Macabre' by Stephen King which I bought at The Big Book Van. This van is famous for having a massive variety of books and it's owned by two older-generation people who have as much of a passion for books as their customers. And when I picked up this one, the lady said she had just put it out on the stand; so it must have been fate for me to have it. I'm really looking forward to reading this book as I've heard great things about it.
The second one I bought at the same markets was 'The First Wives Club' by Olivia Goldsmith. This one was purchased at a stall which had a large number of books, sagas and series; and they were all in wonderful condition. However, seeing I had been looking for this one for some time to replace the one I had years ago which fell apart in my hands, I thought just buying this would be the best thing to do.
My third purchase was just this week - on Monday actually. I've been searching everywhere for a book on Budgerigars; on how to care for them, which breads are which, their history, feeding, breeding... the whole thing. And seeing you can get books about certain dogs, I thought budgies were the same; and I was right. I found this wonderful book titled: 'Budgerigar' by David Alderton in a half-price Publisher's Sales Store for only around $10 (it was $27.99! What a great deal I got!). Well! I've learnt a lot about my little bird and found out a few things about her breed, why she is like she is and that there's really not all that much to worry about.
So, there's my book purchases for this month. Stay tuned at the end of each month to see what I purchase and from where.
