Moonlight Reader started the TBR Thursday, and I think it's a good way to a) show what new books I've got and b) confront myself with my inability to lower my TBR. In fact, since I started recording it, it has risen significantly. I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong here...

Well, last week I went to London with a friend and after asking for some recommendations I already was looking forward to visit some nice book stores. It was even better than I had anticipated! We did around 10 different large book stores in the five days we were in London and I bought a lot books. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot.(show spoiler)
In my defence, they were all only 80p and now I've got the Little Black Classics series complete, which was my ultimate goal for this year. Since I was so disappointed in Frankfurt I was glad to find they did sell them in London at a large number of places, even though at the large Waterstones on Piccadilly they were being moved and were currently not on display. Bought the 47 books in 6 different book stores, Waterstones Gower Street, Waterstones Trafalgar Square, Foyles, South Kensington Books, Daunt Books and the Riverside Bookshop.
And this is what my completed collection looks like.
Some stats (because I really like them).
Dominicanen Maastricht: 27
Van Piere Eindhoven: 1
Dussmann Berlin: 4
Hugendubel Frankfurt: 1
Waterstones Gower Street London: 7
Waterstones Trafalgar Square London: 2
The Riverside Bookshop London: 10
Foyles London: 10
Daunt Books London: 8
South Kensington Books London: 10
Since obviously this was a very busy week in London (we also went to see Richard II in Shakespeare's Globe and did a lot of other things) reading hasn't been all that much. I managed however to still finish some books. Also, there are some new Netgalley approvals to which I'm looking forward to!
