English books? 2nd hand preferably...

Post by mightymite » Fri Sep 12, 2003 3:57 pm

Hi,

Any of u know where to find second hand classics in English? Knowing how expensive books are in Finland, I'm not even trying Academic Bookstore. Austen, Hardy, Bronte, Tolstoy, Orwell, Vikram Seth....

ps. hey, maybe . should organize a garage sale! :wink:

There is a series available at the Suomalainen Kirjakauppa, called Wordsworth Classics: €2.50 per title.

Don't forget the public libraries to save the money! Masses of English books in my city library.

There has also been some discussion about starting a book swapping thread. If you are just looking for a good read. What is your book taste?

Book taste....hmm... I think u've a fair idea from the authors I mentioned above. Broadly speaking, classics; although I've enjoyed contemporary works such as Memoirs of a Geisha (Arthur Golden), Wild Swans (Jung Chang), A Suitable Boy (Vikram Seth) and Riding the Iron Rooster (Paul Theroux)...

no scifi tho... :twisted:
