I just got home from a wonderful two week trip to Europe!!!
We spent a week in London (with a day trip to Cardiff), three days in Vienna, and two days in Prague. It was so much fun.
I managed a few bookstore visits during my trip to London and bought a few books that aren't available (yet) in the US - at least not from what I can tell. I wish I could have spent loads more time in bookshops, but we had much to do and not enough time to do it.
I visited the new flagship Foyle's Bookshop location in London. I also went to the big Waterstone's in Picadilly. Both stores were great, with lots of supply and helpful staff. Here are a few photos and the books I bought:
Boys Don't Knit is coming out in the US in March, but I couldn't wait. Plus, I picked up the sequel.
A podcaster (Adventure With Words) recommended Murder Most Unladylike. It's a middle grade read. A bookseller recommended The Savages.
The Waterstones bookseller also recommended these two books. They're pretty new releases. She said they appeal to people who like John Green and Rainbow Rowell.
I'll share a few more of my photos with you over the next several days. Not only did I get to visit these cool cities, I also went to the Doctor Who Experience and the Leavesden Harry Potter Studio tour!!! I have loads of photos.
