In the last three days I got a bunch of completely different novels:

Day 4 was Daphne du Maurier's classic gothic novel Rebecca. The book itself does not look very impressive; it is an old hardback copy from 1955 that has lost its dust jacket, but everything else is still intact - no torn or missing pages or such. I have wanted to read Rebecca for quite some time. Would anybody perhaps be interested in a buddy read?

On day 5 I got Cormac McCarthy's dystopian novel The Road. I have read No Country for Old Men by the same author and was pretty underwhelmed, not to say disgusted. Still I am curious about this book, as is seems to polarize readers so much.

Today I got Jo Walton's Among Others. I haven't read any of her books, but this one was highly recommended to me, and it is one of the very few of her works that has been translated, so I will give it a try.
