This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

First of all, happy New Year everybody !

I’m going to start my new year with a book haul blog, as you can see 🙂
Before the year turned 2014 me an my parents went on a little road trip in England. We visited the area of east Kent, lots of little towns like Margate, Faversham, Rochester,…
The fun thing about these little towns is that they’re loaded with second-hand shops, charity shops,… So I did get a substantial amount of books for very little money. Here’s what i got.

The Sonnets – The penguin Shakespeare  Boule De Suif – Guy De Maupassant
One Of Our Submarines – Edward Young
The Body In The Library – Agatha Christie
Wuthering Heights – Emily Brontë
The Innocence Of Father Brown – G.K. Chesterton
The Woman Of Andres – Thornton Wilder
Mrs Croddock – W. Somerset Maugham
Rocannon’s World – Ursula Le Guin

Most of these books I bought because they are part of the Penguin series I’m collecting. Basicly all of them. Except Ursula Le Guin, which i bought because i once saw a movie about a book club where they read only Jane Austen, and one of the people there also read Ursula Le Guin, so I wanted to give it a go.
I’ll post some pictures of my entire Vintage Penguin collection soon, it hasn’t reached 3000 copies yet but I’m still pretty proud of it.

The poetical works of Keats
Short stories – Guy De Maupassant
Wuthering Heights – Emily Brontë
Vilette – Charlotte Brontë

The are the more vintage looking books I bought, I really like the “old” editions of these classics. So yes I am aware I bought Wuthering Heights twice in one trip, and if it wasn’t for the money, I would probably have bought 2 more copies.
The books I adore the most of all the books I bought is without a doubt Keats. Again I once saw a movie about his life, and I’ve been listening to poems ( on youtube ) ever since.
The other two I haven’t actually read they’re a nice addition to the collection.
