Finally Found A Copy!

My previous post, written for IAD, talked about the joys of stuff you find in discount and second-hand bookshops. Well, I've unearthed Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber collection - finally! I thought it was out of print, or, at least, you'd need to order it on-line, but there it was at the Bookgrocer in town, and I got it for $10 in the spring sale.

I'm halfway through already and I can see why it's a classic. More on this when I've finished. I also have a Ranger's Apprentice volume to finish and some review books. I don't often put up "reading" on Goodreads because the computer message comes and nags you if you haven't updated it for a while. So this will go up when I've finished it.

Reading it right now! On the 'Erl-King'.

Reading it right now too! On the 'Erl-King'. Decadent prose - remInds me of a Greek pastry: rich and syrupy and best enjoyed as only one little treat per time. Glad I've finally got around to reading Carter.

What a coincidence! That's what I'm just starting too. Mind you, I've been reading it through since yesterday. You're right, though - I'm thinking I'll keep the next treat for tomorrow. :-)

Made a brief comment about it on my own blog. Such rich and wonderful prose. Taking it slow - on the vampire tale as I write :)
