    Looks like you had a great reading month! 🙂 How did you enjoy The View from Castl Rock? I’m planning to read a Munro soon, and year of the Flood, too.

    Wow, I’m so envious of your huge books acquired pile, do you have enough space? 😀

      I was lucky to be able to make it to a library booksale, so my pile of books bought is much larger than normal. And no, I don’t really have the space for them 😛 But I make it work…
