Getting started

To get started with a blog about books, it all begins with purchasing a book. Of course it could be borrowed, but in my case that doesn’t happen that often.

I buy a fair number of books via the internet, the so-called webshops. The ones I use most of the time are Play.com (no send costs), Amazon.co.uk (a bit more send costs), Amazon.com (more send costs) and Bol.com (low send costs) and in certain cases Ebay. Fom Amazon I sometimes even get used books, if certain titles are really hard to find.

My last purchase came from Play.com and was Dubliners by James Joyce. I received it on the 13th of July. It was too cheap to leave it as I had only found it too pricy for such a small book. I have already read A portrait of the artist as a young man (quite nice and in some parts beautifully written) and Ulysses (renowned and worth the effort, even if it’s a tough one). I quite like his works, so reading more is a nice thing. I don’t know yet when I will read it, but at least its on my book shelves.
