BOOKISH FINDS: Camden

EtheringtonHeaders-Bookish FindsDSC_0932

Camden Town is a great place to visit. It’s vibrant and busy and packed full of interesting cuisines and shops, and vintage clothes. It has everything you could want, including a Waterstones. I’ve been in a few times, just to admire the books. In the fiction section downstairs you can heard the distant rumble of the Tubes racing by, and it’s a quiet refuge from the bustle if you’re not a huge fan of crowds. I went in last week to buy my soon to be brother-in-law David Rodigan’s autobiography for his birthday, because I’m one of those pushy bookworms that tries to sneak literature into most celebrations, and I couldn’t help buying something for myself as well.

I bought:

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

I’ve wanted to read this book for ages, and almost bought it more than once. I want to be more diverse in my reading, and I think Homegoing will be a powerful novel and one that tracks the path of history. I’m really excited to read it.

See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt

Another debut novel that I’m really looking forward to reading. See What I Have Done is an interpretation of the violent real-life murders of Abby and Andrew Borden, and the mystery surrounding them. Andrew Borden’s youngest daughter, Lizzie, was tried for their murders and famously acquitted in 1893.
