Welcome Blog Hoppers! I am joining the Crazy for Books blog hop for the first time today, and I am looking forward to reading your various entries. This week's question is: "If I gave you $80 and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"
I love this scenario! I could spend hours in a bookstore, and I usually walk out with much less than I wish I could buy. Used bookstores are particularly dangerous because I can never resist the good deals. But if I had the money to spend, I would buy nicer editions than I currently have. I would probably get a hardback copy of some of my favorite books, like Crime and Punishment. But the books that are currently on my "to-read" list include: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh, Don Quixote by Cervantes, Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence, and The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea by Mishima.
Because I like blogging to be interactive, I'll take this opportunity to get your opinion. Which of these do you think I should read next? Or if not one of these, do you have another suggestion for me? If this is your first time on my blog, you can check out some of my past posts to get a taste of the kind of literature I enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!
