February Purchases

Here we are again; the end of the month; and this time it's the shortest month of the year!  And I've been going well with my book-buying; only buying what I will definitely read.  This has been my New Year Promise to myself; to purchase books that I will read and review for you guys, then I'll definitely get through my massive collection within my lifetime!  And this month, I've been good and bought only two!  But they're wonderful and I took my time picking them out.
The first one that caught my eye was 'Towards The True Kinship of Faiths' by His Holiness The Dalai Lama.  I've always wanted to read something he's written and now I have bought this, I'm really looking forward to reading his words about how religions from all over the globe can somehow get along.
The second book I purchased is 'King Arthur: The Bloody Cup' by M.k. Hume.  It's a very thick book of '... the epic tale of Arthur, King of the Britons'.  I love reading Arthurian tales and books; so I'm definitely looking forward to reading this one too.
Both these books were purchased from QBD at Garden City off the discount tables; which I find always have a great array of books to choose from, whatever your taste in reading!  So, what did you purchase - and from where - this month?  Until next month's purchases, happy reading!


  1. I am interested to hear what you think of the MK Hume books. I have thought about getting hold of them not least of all because the author is Australian, but the boosk don't seem all that easily accessible.

  2. I found this one on the discount pile... so thought that seeing I love Arthurian Legends to give it a try. I will be trying to read all of my Arthurian Legend books one day and put them all up here; it ought to be interesting to see the different ways authors see this great King from all angles and nationalities.

    I bought this one from QBD; which has an online store if you'd like to purchase this particular book.
