My Black Friday Purchases…

Black Friday Books
Black Friday Books

Because I am book obsessed, my Black Friday purchases weren’t clothes or shoes or jewelry… but books, books and more books! Look at these beautiful works of art! Notice the colorful covers and spines! I think they will look right at home on my shelves! Did I mention they were 75% off?

Here is a list of my acquisitions:

  • Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
  • Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland
  • The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
  • A Student of Weather by Elizabeth Hay
  • A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
  • Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
  • In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje
  • A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz
  • Digging to America by Anne Tyler

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get going: I have a lot of reading to do…

What did you buy on Black Friday?

Written by Cecile

Cécile Sune was born in Lyon, France, and her obsession with books started when she was 14. Her grandparents had lent her Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, and she spent part of the summer indoors reading. Needless to say, her tan didn't really improve that year! It was also around that time that Cécile fell in love with the English language. Several years later, in 1999, Cécile moved to Toronto, Canada, with her cat and 5 suitcases. Her love of reading greatly increased when she discovered that English books were much cheaper than French novels. In 2013, she decided to start a blog to share her passion. Cécile now lives in Ottawa, Canada, with her husband and their daughter, and works as a freelance translator (CS Revision).

  1. One of my favourite things about buying actual books is how pretty some of the covers are. You just don’t get the same satisfaction from looking at your e-book library:) That being said, I’ve been reading a lot more e-books because I find I don’t peek at the endings on my Kindle the way I might with a real book…
