I went to the Lifeline Bookfest this week and managed to constrain myself from buying the lot... like last time...
You may remember last time I went to the Bookfest I went madly out of control and bought way more than I planned to. You can read all about that fiasco HERE.
That's not to say that I don't love my purchases, but I simply can't afford the shelf-space! So to avoid a similar situation this time round, I wrote myself a list of books I need for uni plus a couple I want for my collection.
Great Expectations is one of my texts for an upcoming literature unit I will be studying. Seven Little Australians and Northern Lights are texts for a Youth and Children's writing unit the following semester. A Tangled Web is a beautiful, hardcover collector's edition L. M. Montgomery novel. And you remember White Teeth? I love this book and this copy is brand new!
I may not have bought much but I am extremely pleased with what I found. I call it a success.
