I waited 4 days before buying my first book, but have since run a little amok, acquiring 49 books in my first 21 days in the UK. These fall into several categories:
- spontaneous purchases of books on sale at Blackwells, or found in the Last Bookshop (a discount shop where everything is £2, but which has interesting stock) or charity shops;
- a pile of books I've been putting off buying online until I got to the UK;
- a number of books bought as preparation for trips to Switzerland and Turkey.
Here's a photo of my first 40 acquisitions (click image for larger version with readable titles).
