Hi guys! After two weeks of no book-shopping, I finally gave in out of necessity. This week (April 22 - 29, 2012) I bought four books because I need them for my English courses as a soon-to-be English major. :D
- The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr and E.B. White
I've been told that this is a must for every English major. Although this book is not required for uni, I willingly bought it. ;)
We'll be studying English literature this June. Yay!
- Cocktail by Vince Licata and Ping Chong
I also bought my first English-English dictionary! Hooray! I'll be buying more when semester starts. I have my eyes set on Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary and Collins Cobuild. One at a time. Haha. I became quite obsessed with dictionaries too. They're kind of fascinating.
Night Sky by Jolene B. Perry
H2O the Novel by Austin Boyd and Brannon Hollingsworth
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown
Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein
Divergent by Veronica Roth
So that's it for me this week. Tell me what's in your mailbox!
Question of the week: Which English-English dictionary do you use? Any recommendations for a new English major? ;)
