Book Shopping April and May 2016

Confession Time: I went a bit absolutely crazy in the past two months. I already shared that big shopping trip at the end of March, and the other one I had for my birthday at the beginning of April. Unfortunately, I have to admit that it didn’t stop there. And, honestly, I don’t know where the money for it came from. Do I regret it? You are so funny!

Birthday-Book Shopping

Birthday-Book Shopping

Okay, so, you know how it is. It’s your birthday, people give you money, you go to the next-best book-shop to spend it all. Well, I cannot go to the next-best, ‘cause they only do German, so I went to town and into Thalia. They have one mini-shelf with English books in which I usually find one I’d like to read. Or two. You know, I’m flexible like that.

I also went to the German side of things for two reasons. 1) So much more to choose from. 2) I’m tending to forget the German language, my mother tongue after all, when I spend too much time in the English-speaking realm. So, every once in a while, it needs to be a book in German.

Without further ado, here they are:

Büchereinkauf

Dank meiner wundervollen Freundin V. hatte ich Anfang des Jahres die Möglichkeit einen Buchladen zu betreten, ohne fürchten zu müssen, dass ich viel zu viel Geld dort lassen würde. Sie hat mir einen „BücherScheck“ geschenkt.
Was soll ich sagen? Ich bin trotzdem groß einkaufen gegangen.

Goodreads Giveaways 2015

I’ve wanted to do this post for such a long time. And I finally told myself: No more delays!
Basically, I have entered most of the goodreads giveaways since August, in hopes for new reading material and, most of all, new reading experiences. I have been lucky enough to win a few books already, mostly in German, but also two in English – so here’s a reason to do this post in English, too.
