I went to the local book fair a few days ago, which has been a bi-annual tradition of mine for the last few years. This one was the International version, which meant they featured books of different authors from a lot of different countries, which I would appreciate if I knew any other language. Jokes apart, I saw some coffee-table books and photographic ones that were different and that I loved! This post will be my Book Haul and some stationery bits that I could not refrain from buying.
Another reason why this Haul is extra special is that it includes books that my very thoughtful friend gifted to me, mere days after the Fair. I was so excited because she got me two of the very books that I mentioned in my 2018 Book Bucket List.
Another habit of my mine is to go completely gaga purchasing books. And, don’t even get me started on stationery – Me look-ey, me buy-ey! And, that has resulted in an overflowing bookcase and a not so full bank account. However, this time I was rational about each and every decision, like looking up Goodreads ratings for each book.; and gauging the practical use of each stationery item that I bought. I’ll start with the stationery:
- Owl Hard-Bound Notebook in A5
Okay, yes. I bought another diary, in another print, made of handmade paper that I will save for a rainy day. But, I’m also planning to make doodles, for which this would be perfect, handy and easy-to-carry.
