Oh my, oh my. What an insane month!
I didn’t only get around to read a lot, I also bought waaaay too many books. Oopsie!
But I have to say I didn’t buy a lot of books in December, January, and February so I think it’s okay to go over the tops once in a while. Also, I was on vacation at my parents’ in Germany and of course I had to order some (used) books while being there and I did a little shopping too…
So I accumulated 21 books altogether. I know, I know…it’s massive. I was hoping to be able to picture all of the books, but the package I have been waiting to arrive for ages, but they haven’t arrived yet and I lend the other book to my friend.
Some of the books I ordered used from Rebuy, others I got on sale in German bookstores and others were just regular priced books. There are many German books – sorry guys! I will link you the English translation if available.
Oh dear, I was definitely too eager with my reading pile last months. I planned to read sooo much and did actually only read 1 book and listened to 2 audiobooks. Ups.
I’m about halfway through Illuminae and I really like the book but I guess I just been to distracted (by netflix) and got into a reading slump…
I’m so sorry I didn’t manage to post a weekly recap last week, but I was super tired last Sunday. I mentioned that my friend from Germany was visiting and it was so nice seeing her again. We spend super boring most of the time at home, watched Harry Potter and ate junk food. Saturday (last week) we went to this Meri Rock Cruise which was fun. So nice to see some bands live again.
Hello and happy Monday! Today I want to show you where I buy my books.
Most of the paperbacks I have bought during the last year I got from the Academic Bookstore in Helsinki. It’s the largest bookstore in Finland (or probably even Northern Europe) and it’s huge, not to say massive! It has a large collection of English books, as well as books in Finnish, Swedish, Russian, German, French, Spanish, and Estonian. And probably other languages too.
It also has a coffee on the second floor and Starbucks on the ground floor, and currently it holds an exhibition of Jean Sibelius on the top floor.
Books can be found on the ground– and second floor. In the basement, you have stationery supplies and a passageway to the Stockmann Department Store of which the Academic Bookstore used to be a part. Now the bookstore has been bought by a Swedish company and therefore, there will probably be some major and minor changes during this fall.
