Post the last book(s) you've bought.



I just bought 7 Types of Ambiguity by William Empson.
I'm a happy lad. I've been trying to get this book into my mitts for years! Places like Barnes & Noble--what am I saying? there are no other places--could never order it.

Sword and Fan. L5R RPG book, just recently saw a reprint, which made me happy, because paying double price on amazon is kinda rough.

Perdido Street Station by China MiƩville. Looking to fill the Iain M. Banks (his book of poems is pretty good, but I'm not as interested in the Ken Macleod half of it) -sized hole in my bookshelves.

Also got The Wind-Up Girl by Paolo Bacigalup, for later.

"Winged: new writing on bees." I also preordered Overqualifieder by Joey Comeau even though it was only doable through Amazon.

Paper Aeroplane by Simon Armitage. I now slightly regret getting Collected Poems, but there's not too much overlap.

I have Labyrinths, Fictions and The Aleph, so I'm obviously not too worried about this.

So... I live in a college town east of Los Angeles and every Sunday morning there's a street market which sells fruit, vegetables, knickknacks and a used book stall.
I just bought:

1. Situation: Documents of Contemporary Art, ed. C. Doherty
2. William Tyndale: A Biography by D. Daniel
3. Trozas by B. Traven
4. The Cheese and the Worms by C. Ginzberg

Not a bad haul for $3
