Book Haul!

Over the last year and a half since I’ve been interning in publishing and working in a bookstore, I’ve acquired more books than I ever have at any other point in my life. I mean, I’ve gone in to interview for jobs and walked out with a bag full of books in my hand. It’s pretty much what I’ve always dreamed of.

So I think, in light of all these new books, I’ll start posting Book Hauls, something that I’ve seen on Tumblr and other places where book nerds like me drool over their new acquisitions. And my most recent Book Haul looks like this:
