Yeah, the other day, the interesting independent book store (there is only one of them in this area that is of any interest to me – it’s true!) launched its annual backyard sale. I don’t actually want physical copies of books, and especially not hard covers, because I simply don’t have the space to keep them in – and yet… Books, right? Right?
I came away with five books, of which three were already on my wish list / TBR, so that felt almost… smart and reasonable? Wallet says nah.
- Nick Harkaway, Angelmaker
- Margaret Atwood, In other worlds: SF and the human imagination
- Sendhil Mullainathan, Eldar Shafir, Scarcity: Why having too little means so much
- Craig Childs, Apocalyptic planet
- Adam Rutherford, Creation
AND! The backyard wasn’t enough reckless spending for me. Because I feel like I’m probably going to be a Kameron Hurley fangirl once I get a grip and read a novel of hers – I grabbed The Mirror Empire. (Partly because I also like to buy books from Angry Robot. I mean, obviously!)
