Second Hand Book Finds #1

17 Problems only book lovers will understand seems to have gone viral in social media. I am not surprised, since it’s so TRUE, as most of you would agree! And the 17th problem is that you can never have TOO MANY BOOKS! With so many books still sitting on my table, waiting to be read, I still had to get myself some more books that I couldn’t resist buying when I chanced upon these series of second hand book stalls in Saket, thanks to one of my market visits (I love my job :-P)! Find below some photos of the place and my second hand book finds!
This is near PVR Anupam, Saket in South Delhi, in case you want to check out the books.
This is what I bought:
Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth: This book is an important voice for the third wave of the feminist movement.
Random fact about the book: In 2002, Harper Collins published a 10th anniversary commemorative edition of The Beauty Myth.
John Irving, The Cider House Rules: The story is about a young doctor and explores the abortion debate. Yes, the movie starring Charlize Theron and Tobey Maguire is based on this book.
(Related: Review of ‘Last Night in Twisted River’ by the same author)
Wilbur Smith, Eagle in the Sky: I generally prefer other books to the ones which have too much action but this is an attempt to ‘diversify’ my reading.
Catherine Coulter, The Scottish Bride: Oh well, let’s just say I was in the mood to read something like this. Sometimes, you are just not in any mood to read something heavy or read for the ‘beauty of language’.
