Splurge!

It's been quite a while since I have taken a trip around The Book Depository website and had a little splurge so today I did just that! Here is what I will be keeping an eye out for at my front door:


Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert (translation by Lydia Davis) - this book looks just divine and I will hopefully have it in time to read along with Frances and others.

Coco Chanel - Justine Picardie - I have been waiting for the release of this one for what feels like the longest time!

The Fashion File - Janie Bryant - One of my most beloved obsessions at the moment (apart from reading) is the TV show Mad Men and everything associated with it - especially the fashion.

Hi Coffee - I know! I am hoping (as they usually do with The Book Depository) that come one at a time so that my joy can last!!

Hi Andi - I know, I do actually have another perfectly readable copy of Madame Bovary but this was just too gorgeous to resist.

Hi Meg - I am sure the cover will only add to the reading value of the content inside!

Hi Sabrina - thank you so much for awarding me such a lovely award!

I bet the Coco Chanel book will be fascinating. Madame Bovary is wonderful (sad) and you're in for a treat.What a gorgeous looking copy.

Frances said...

Yay! You are joining us for sure now. Isn't that cover gorgeous too? Posting on Monday about the new Paris Review piece by Lydia Davis on the new translation. That Coco Chanel book looks pretty tempting too.

Hi Jodie - I know, I have read it before but I think it would be a book that would offer many different things on different readings - looking forward to it!
