Musings/It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Rebecca of Just One More Page..

Do you frequent second hand book stores? Have you ever bought a book home only to find anything interesting within their pages?

I do frequent second hand book stores. I have found the best of bargains there for almost the price of peanuts. In Delhi, we do have a Sunday book Bazaar on the pavements, which is very popular. It is one of my favourites haunts to pick out interesting books.


However, I don't remember finding anything interesting within the books other than random bookmarks.

I love used bookstores! I wish we had a Sunday book Bazaar. I'd be there faithfully each week :)

I am excited to read all of Larsson's books. Plus, I am definitely a browser not only of bookstores but of libraries.

I loved O'Juliet - thought it a beautifully written version of Shakespeare's classic story.

Here is my Monday: http://thelostentwife.net/2010/05/02/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-19/

I love second hand book stores but I have never found anything fun in my books either.

I can't wait to see what you think of some of these books!

Loved the Girl who played with Fire much better than the first one. Go Lisbeth! Great review of it by the way. Happy reading..
