I think it is necessary to say that I didn't go there to buy books but once we'd come across the American Book Centre, it was just all down hill from there. Then again, my sister did give me permission when she said 'you buy books and I'll buy cheese'. We did both in excess and added an extra 7kg to our suitcase on the way home...So, without further ado, here is what I purchased.
|Second hand books|
Now, to the best bit - my blind date. I have seen this idea around twitter before but never come across it in a bookshop. The minute I did, I was all over it like a rash. Seriously. The idea is to stop you from judging books by their cover. As someone who does that constantly, I was pretty excited (and slightly nervous) to do some blind book buying. I wasn't disappointed. I love a bit of death, mourning and dysfunction in my novels so it wasn't a hard decision choosing this one.
And this is my blind date book. It's a book I hadn't heard of though I do think I've heard of one of Tropper's other novels. If you've read it, let me know!
Would you go on a blind date with a book? Surely it's better than a real blind date...
