Today was a banner freaking day. I went to several second-hand bookshops and scored some stuff I'd been waiting for.

The List:

Labyrinth by Kate Mosse
The Ladies of Grace Adieu by Susanna Clarke
The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy
Necropolis by Anthony Horowitz (Hardback! For less than a fiver!)
The Murder Room by P.D. James
Dracula by Bram Stoker, also hardback.
Dreams by Carl Jung
Psychological Reflections by Carl Jung
Psychology and the Occult by Carl Jung
Memories, Dreams, and Reflections by Carl Jung (you're sensing a theme...)

Also, the new M.A.C. store opened today and I rejoiced as I'd been buying it online. So nice to finally have a shop in Cambridge.

Oh, and the other day, I bought The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson when I was at Borders. My To Be Read Shelf is well-stocked now.

To top it off, I had lunch and then coffee with Jade and tomorrow we're going to have a picnic on Jesus Green, weather permitting.

Yay for cheap book finds! Congrats on your treasures!

I also have a second-hand book store in my city, and I am ever so grateful for it. Just this last weekend I was able to find another hard cover copy of a Pratchett book. My collection grows, mwahahahaha! I also picked up Neil Gaiman's "American Gods" on a whim.

American Gods is really great. I read it a few years ago. I was going to do a re-read recently but then I remembered that my ENT absconded with my copy.

When you say MAC do you mean the cosmetics company?

I just started reading Terry Pratchett for the first time. That guy has the greatest sense of humor.

Yes, but we also got an Apple Store in the Grand Arcade, pretty close to the M.A.C. shop.
