Received today from the Folio Society Sharpe’s Fortress. Found at a friends of the library sale The Dollhouse, The Autograph Collector, Around the World with Auntie Mame and The Poems of Doctor Zhivago. From an antique mall I got the 24 volume set of Knickerbocker’s miniature Shakespeare.

Reading Decluttering at the Speed of Life, so I really shouldn't keep some/most of my ARCs, including the one I just brought home: How High We Go in the Dark by Sequoia Nagamatsu (pub 1/22; speculative fiction)

Bought on 24. November 2021 at my fave local bookstore:
Rupi Kaur: Milk and Honey,
Ryunosuke Akutagawa: The life of a stupid man, (That title... 😂 Far too tempting...😅)
Kristof Magnusson: Pet Shop Boys (non-fiction, in German),
Patrick Salmen: Ekstase ist doch manchmal auch ganz schön (roughly: Sometimes ecstasy is also quite nice, actually) (Seems to be a satire about modern life... That title, again 😁)
