The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. - Jane Austen

Now Reading: Joyce Carol Oates – We Were the Mulvaneys

I was a bit unsure about what to expect from my last book (The Postman Always Rings Twice). The blurb said that it was originally banned in Boston when it was released in the 1930s because it was too erotic and violent. I think I’ve been desensitised by modern films as I didn’t find it too bad. It was violent, but I’ve definitely read worse. The story itself was very interesting, I was just disappointed the book was only 116 pages long!

I got home from work today to my latest parcel from The Book People. This time I bought a couple of sets, including one set of 10 books for £4.50, which is where my next book comes from. Not a clue what to expect from it, but I’m just glad it’s a longer book than the last two, so it doesn’t end just as I’m getting in to it!
