  1. Nice book haul! I wouldn't know where to begin with those stacks.
    2 Kids and Tired Books

  2. So many good books!
    I love Les Liasions Dangereuses, it's one of the least stuffy classic books I have ever read.

    1. Nice to hear! I've been a classics slump for quite a while now, so maybe this will help break it.
