AKA Showcase Sunday
Welcome to this week’s edition of Book Hoarders Anonymous confessions! At the beginning of the week I told myself I had to make a concerted effort to reduce the number of books coming in. I’m planning to have a big sort out and give away loads of books and generally find some sort of organisation within the chaos that is my bookshelves. But my colleagues wanted to do a Book People order and well, I’d been holding off buying books from them for ages. The five books (only £12!) I did order are a fraction of the ones I’ve been tempted by over the last few months.
Then I won a book on Twitter. Seriously, non-bloggers need to retweet more; it always seems to be the same faces winning things, people are going to start getting suspicious. I don’t even enter that many as I don’t really need them and I still win stuff. At least my review book this week doesn’t need to be read for a while as it’s for a blog tour in January (I like advance warning – just don’t let me forget).
I’d just like to say a quick word about the Vintage 21 editions. Vintage turned 21 last year so they’re not new but I hadn’t realised what they’d done with the 21 titles they released as birthday editions. Each book is a different colour and the edges of the pages have been spray-painted to match. They look so pretty! You can view the list here and you can read my wrap-up of the Vintage Books Readers’ Day where I got the lovely purple book.
