Two acquisitions today and both are books I've already read.
Talking It Over by Julian Barnes - I loved this book when I read it over ten years ago and since then its popped into my mind once in a while. My friend Yolanda who's visiting at the moment mentioned it a few days ago out of the blue and that did it! I have to reread this. This is the story of a love triangle told from three different points of view. I wish I could use it as my book club read but there aren't enough copies in Manila book shops.
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway - I read this when I was eighteen but I didn't like it. I have a feeling my opinion will change now. I'm reading this together with Claire of Kiss a Cloud and Mark David of Absorbed in Words .
Have you read any of these and what did you think?
