1. The Hobbit, J. R. R. Tolkien
2. Kafka on the Shore, Haruki Murakami
3. Between Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys
My brother's copy of The Hobbit is so tattered that I just had to get a new one when I saw it in the bookstore last night. I've been eyeing Between Shades of Gray for a while now and I was pleased when I took the last copy of it from the display table. Buying new books is always such a joy for me and don't you love it as you watch your very own collection grow?
