What I bought today...

Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet! I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I…

I thought it would be worthwhile to start a new discussion on books. To narrow it down a bit, I suggest we stick to the more or less mod- related books; I wouldn´t want to bother you with each and every novel I´ve read. Among the ones I´ve read…
