Re: What Is The Last Book or Books You Bought?

I've bought a Len Deighton book and an Alan Furst book. Anyone know anything about/recommend these authors?

Re: What Is The Last Book or Books You Bought?

I bought a couple of Peter Cameron's books recently. Bought the new Galgut and new Nicole Krauss. I don't normally buy hard covers as they are too heavy, but I loved History of Love so I bought this one.

''O eco-friendly, Nature ke rakshak, Main bhi hoon nature!. Rivaazon se, Samaajhon se, kyon, Tu kaate mujhe, Kyun baante mujhse iss tarah. Kyun sach ka sabak sikhaaye, Jab sach sunn bhi na paaye. Sach koi bole toh tu, niyam kanoon bataaye. Tera darr, tera pyaar, teri waah, tu hi rakh!!! ''~~~ Irshad Kamil

Re: What Is The Last Book or Books You Bought?

I wound up with a couple of Westerns last night by Louis L'Amour and another WEB Griffin novel. Nothing earth shattering.
