secondhand books! i do love them! sometimes i just forget when i have such ready access to shiny and new books. but when it comes to the classics, i can't go past a yellow-paged delight.
i bought these at the barwon booksellers in queenscliff while i was down visiting my mama bear and my dadda and farewelling les frogs who are heading (via new zealand and la nouvelle caledonie) back to frogland. bon voyage!!
carson mccullers' clock without hands
gertrude stein's three lives
jean-paul sartre's the reprieve
and les frogs gave me jack kerouac's sur la route - which i have read in english but it could be an interesting read in french too.
they are just so purty. and they smell good. i can't wait to read them.
