I use mainly e-books for my day-to-day reading consumption. Nowadays I buy actual books to collect. Latest one would be this edition of Norwegian Wood. (2003 Vintage) from TBD. It's gorgeous.

Yes yes! Murakami's book covers from that edition set is absolutely beautiful, it's tempting me to buy it again.

BTW if you have a lot of money, there is a publisher, The Folio Society, whose specialty is beautifully designed, lavish books. Their edition of Tolkien's Lord of Rings Trilogy, here, just make me cream my pants

Ahh, first time in this thread and I love it already.

My most recent purchase is Tina Fey's Bossypants; it has a lot of references that I don't really get considering I didn't grow up in the States, but I'm familiar with Tina's work enough that I can keep up. Some bits are hilarious and some really get you thinking. Still halfway through and quite enjoying it.

Hello Inka! I have plans to read The Red Pyramid too. Hope you're enjoying it and hope that I will too, later. Haha :)

Femmy | 301 comments Just bought Breakthrough from The Book Depository. I watched And The Band Played On on HBO last night and was fascinated by people who dedicate their efforts to uncover the mystery surrounding an unknown disease, which later is called AIDS. So I thought I might treat myself with another tale about a medical breakthrough.
