While I withstood temptation by spending hours at Indigo and not buying anything, I made up for it this weekend. My parent's friend has a cottage we like to visit, and it happens to be near some shops I really like. I bought The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, which I've been meaning to read for a while.
On the way home we returned to The World's Smallest Bookstore, which I've spoken about before (x). Books are self serve and $3 each, so I got carried away. I bought Exiles from Paradise: Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald by Sara Mayfield, This Side of Paradise and The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald and One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I'm a bit unsure about the last book, since I didn't enjoy Love in the Time of Cholera.
Library books! My hold on The Diviners by Libba Bray came in, and I'll hopefully get to this one soon. My hold on the second book in the Fruits Basket series by Natsuki Takaya also came in. I read the first book the other day and am currently watching the anime and I'm really loving it. This is my first manga ever.
