yey! thanks to a lovely, lovely birthday giftcard from moonriddengirl, i got to bounce around amazon.co.uk looking for books to buy. of course, i got a bit carried away and added a few extra books, haha, but i order books so seldomly (like, once a year, i usually only buy paperbacks in various local bookstores) i figured i'd make it extra heavy.
i'm now waiting on:
- Moab is my washpot, by Stephen Fry
- Ghost Story, by Toby Litt
- The Brooklyn Follies, by Paul Auster
- The Gun Seller, by Hugh Laurie
- Jpod, by Douglas Coupland
- Fragile Things, by Neil Gaiman
i'm very excited! the first three books i'm giving a go on anja's suggestion (i always read toby litt books when i visit her, and i really enjoy stephen fry as a performer and am curious to get to know him as a writer), and the latter three i'm getting because a) love hugh laurie, and keep hearing good things about his book, b) have read everything else by douglas coupland over the years, so might as well keep up with it, even though they're comparing this one to one of my least liked coupland books, and c) i like neil gaiman*, and most of all i like his short stories - even more than some of his books. :o
and now? sleeeeep! cin cin. and :* to moonriddengirl. wee!
* i first typed it as "neil gamina" hahahaha.
