There is a gap between a thought and the words to express it. So thinking dangles.

May Sarton, ‘Endgame: A Journal of the Seventy-Ninth Year’

And so too, has this space been left dangling idly, I’m afraid. The lack of posts in the past two months was not so much a reflection of the lack of thoughts or ideas with regards to books and reading (much less a lack of book buying, as you shall see!), but rather it was more to do with the lack of ability to somehow translate all those into words.

As such, I think it would be better to just let the pictures do most of the telling, for now.
It helps that the annual Big Bad Wolf Box Sales has just taken place during the past week or so, and yielded me with quite a happy bounty to share here. 🙂

The Fiction stack.

 

The Arts & Science stash.

 

The Memoirs, Travels & Biographies.

 

The Essays, Ethics & Philosophical.

 

The Good-to-look-At. 🙂

 

The ‘Cream of the Crop’. Except for the slight damage to front cover of the slip jacket, the actual volume itself is in pristine condition. And what a beauty it is!

Take a look for yourself…..

And to think that it had only cost me the equivalent of less than one Euro, to own this beauty (as with most of the rest, too).

Just when I thought there wouldn’t be any much more exciting finds towards the end of the 10-day sales, here’s what I got on my final haul…..

Not too bad, right? 😀

Seen anything in those stacks that might have caught your enthusiasm too? 🙂

    1. Thank you, Jane. 🙂 I’m sure there are many surprises and delightful discoveries to be made from these stacks too. The anticipation alone is enough to make me happy. 😀
