Exclusive books winter sale just finished, and this year I did not enter the competition to win the dash, but next year I shall!
I managed to get ‘ Pearl of China’ by Anchee Min for R48 and ‘ Dali and I ‘ by Stan Lauryssens for R56. I was captured by the stories and look forward to discovering new authors and new societies in China and the art world of Salvador Dali.
I completed ‘Vanity fair’ this past weekend and it was so worth the weight. I shall miss Thackeray’s style of writing , so I will be on the lookout for his earlier pieces. I loved his referencing to historical facts and events as well as how he made fun of society at the time. He is truly a classic storyteller.
