Chris Beckett: Dark Eden EB R 134 Kalahari R 108.
I find the online shopping experience somewhat cold and impersonal, but at least as far as books are concerned the price difference seems too big to ignore.
Last Orders by Graham Swift - not universally popular, but I've never read Swift, and I want to see what the fuss is about. Also, cheap :)
The Book of Evidence by John Banville - I've enjoyed every Banville I've read (yes, even The Sea), and I like disturbing books. Well, maybe not like, but I find them interesting.
Seven Ages of Paris by Alistair Horne - hmm, not the greatest reviews, but I want to read more about Paris...
Waiting for the Barbarians by J.M. Coetzee - great South African writer, now unfortunately decamped to Australia
The Border Trilogy by Cormac McCarthy - one of my favourite contemporary American authors
The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories edited by Jeff VanderMeer - I love stories of the macabre, the strange, the fantastic... the weird, I guess
Dante in Love by A.N. Wilson - a very cheap hardcover about a very interesting poet whom I intend to get to... soon
The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson - another cheap hardback and, despite the controversy about the book, it still looks interesting
Grendel by John Gardner - also controversial, but looks very good. I should maybe read Beowulf first, though
Collected Poems by Wallace Stevens - probably my favourite find, a hardcover of Stevens in excellent condition
Although I bought several books, I thought the selection was a bit disappointing. I'm from Pretoria, so the books were bought from Exclusives at the Menlyn and Brooklyn shopping malls.
Plus I have been told the Zone branch in Rosebank , Jhb is closing down and their stock is less 50 per cent .
