My mission....

On the corner of Roeland street, in Cape Town, is a beautiful little bookshop that comply to all my idealistic expectations of what a booskhop should be.


I often drive past it but today I decided to pay the shop a little visit ...and boy, am I glad I did!!!!

It was in this little shop, between shelves and tables stacked with books that I decided on my litery mission for 2012: to read 12 classics this year. One each month. Books that I always wanted to read but never got around too.

So my mission began today and I bought my first two books...


...which came wrapped in beautiful brown paper.

Initially I decided on Anna Karenina but unfortunately the last one sold out this weekend so while I am waiting for my order to arrive....

....I am going ahead and reading Flaubert's "Madam Bovary".
Like most of the books I have read/want to read, it was recommended by a friend. I make little lists at the back of my diary. I am such a nerd, I know!!!

Oh, and I got Dr.Seuss just for fun.

What classics have you/do you want to read?
