London Book Haul

I said some time ago that i was aiming to be on a book buying ban for a while. YALC is a very big book buying experience, so i wanted to avoid buying books for a few months while i had chance to catch up on some reading. That clearly did not happen.

I’m going to stop presuming they’ll be no more book hauls and just accept that i really like books. Here are the ones that i got in the month of February, it’s quite a substantial haul.
