New arrivals at our home

Last Saturday, after attending our first childbirth preparation class, we visited the "Book Fair" in A Coruña. We couldn't resist not buying anything... there were so many things we liked ... but finally we decided to buy a series of books by Miroslav Sasek, "This is New York" and "This is Rome." (We selected these titles because certainly these are two of our favorite cities) The books are two kids guidebooks with fun texts and charming illustrations. The collection consist of more than a dozen titles and we´ll try to gain some more titles to our collection.

This Saturday it was our getting-books-day: after visiting the fair we went to visit other  bookshop as we remembered seeing this one book that had stolen my heart since a some time. This is the Taschen´s edition of "Tales of the Brothers Grimm" by Noel Daniel. It is a very special edition bound in cloth and with new illustrations of classics fairy-tales between 1850 and 1950, which are more than two dozen fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. So classic and cool!

Vic finally "found" his book of this summer. (bit late though) "Under the same star" by John Green is according to him a worthy candidate. A short yet ironic novel, with sharpness and dreamy story-telling despite controversial circumstances. Vic has begun to read it and is really excited ... so I'll keep you posted.
