Why do you ask.

I'm only that bad in the Netherlands, because my feeling of "must! learn! every! bit of this culture! and catch up to those who have been here all their lives!" is only as bad there. I can't emerge from a used book store there without having spent at least twenty euros.

Which is actually fine, except that I always eventually have to bring them all back to Canada...ugh.

Oh man, "Queer Universes"? "Feminism and Science Fiction"? I think I need these books in my life.

This is why I've been trying to stay away from used bookstores. I just don't have the time atm and they will sit on my bookshelf and STARE ACCUSINGLY until I give in. ;___;

If I stop by the gay bookshop on my way back from uni today it'll be entirely your fault.

New/unread books have some kind of eldritch Lovecraftian power to destroy your brain. I don't even know.

Oh, I am so irrational about libraries. If I like a book at all, I want to own it. Your partner would so not approve, I'm sure (mine definitely doesn't)...

Must.. resist.. the urge to leap for your book pile..

..hey, I think I own Sofi Oksanen's Baby Jane! Frantic book hunting time is obviously at hand.

Still want all of those books, though. Alien to Femininity and Feminism and Science Fiction look especially tempting and oh, Angela Carter. *hearts*

One book at the time seems like a suitable rhythm! All you need to do is to follow it. ;)

I still haven't a full Sofi Oksanen-book yet, but from what I saw and from what I've heard "enjoyable but uncomfortable" sums her books up well.
