Now, I didn't buy any books until late in the month; and this is because the After Christmas Sales are to die for! I love them and do get the best bargains possible at them. But I hate the crowds... I do think getting in amongst the crowds are worth the hassle though.
The first books I bought are from QBD at Garden City. I bought them on a Westfield Gift Voucher and am proud to say I went by another person's opinion this time. One of my old friends - and job search people from a few years back - recommended 'The Six Sacred Stones' by Matthew Rielly to me; and I never bought it until this week. He's a big fan of his; and I'm going to find out why next year or so when I get to reading it.
The next book in line I bought was a strange one that I had never heard of; but I found I might like as I've never heard of the author. And new authors can be like food you've never tasted before; fun and exciting or poor and disgusting. So, I thought to try out an author just like this in 'The Monsters of Templeton' by Lauren Groff. I hope it's a good read; Stephen King certainly thought it was.
Today, I while I was out with my brother - who took me out to celebrate my birthday rather late (only because he was in Asia for it and didn't get a chance to give me a pressie) - I found 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' by F.Scott Fitzgerald and the most gorgeous orange 'Penguin' tin with book titles on it. so, I bought those with my Westfield Voucher. Very cool if you ask me!Well, that's my December Book Buys; and just in time too! So, until next time I hope you guys have a wonderful new year and enjoy calling in your resolutions and fun for next year. Happy Reading and until next time, keep doing just that.
