Books bought at a flea market last week:
- Seierherrene by Roy Jacobsen
- Out of Africa by Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen)
- Three Disney picture books for the lass
The former I have read, once on a time. Just after it was first published, in fact. I loved it. Partly because it’s my familiy history, to some extent, the narrator’s mother moves from the north of Norway to Oslo just like my maternal grandmother did. I’ve been wanting to reread it for a while, so when I found a clean hardback copy I couldn’t pass it up. Out of Africa is on my list of “books I probably should feel ashamed I haven’t read”. Well, the world is full of books and I have no time to waste on feeling ashamed if I’m to have time to read them all, but at least now I can put it on mount tbr. It’s a penguin edition (with Shadows in the Grass) with a film shot of Mery Streep and Robert Redford on the front. And, no, I haven’t seen the film, either.
