New books

I've been buying som new books recently. I've also started to enjoy classics in a way I didn't do before. Have you read any of these?

emily brontë - wuthering heights
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. I thought this would be something like Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, but I was really surprised. I can't wait to see the new screen adaptation either.

selma lagerlöf from 1916
An old Swedish classic. This was printed in 1916 and I'm glad i got it for $3 in a thrift store.

more books
Again; Swedish classics. But here's also a book by Thomas Mann and some leftover booze.

fred hoyle
I haven't read this yet. It's supposed to be some old science fiction novel by a scientist.

I'm pretty sure some of you have read this books. It's On day in the life of Ivan Denisovich by Alexandr Solzhenitsyn. It's about Ivan's life as an intern at a working camp in Russia.

These are some of my read and un-read books. From Russia, Romania, Sweden and England.

william s. burroughs - junky
And last: a Swedish translation of William S. Burroughs' Junky.

Svindlande höjder är en fantastisk bok på många sätt! Dem flesta av dem andra har jag inte läst, har en hög med ''inte-hunnit-läsa-böcker'' på mig.
