New purchases

The other day I visited one of the book stores here in Innsbruck. Wagner’sche Buchhandlung. It is always nice to look around there, maybe sit down in one of the armchairs and check out the books. They have a small, but good English section. There was a whole section of Fantasy books, maybe a hint for me? I did not buy any of these, but could not resist three books that have been on my radar for a while.

Atalanta and Elektra by Jennifer Saint. I really loved her book about Ariadne, so have high hopes on these. Bought as preparation for our Greek travels.


Babel by R.F. Kuang has been on my list for a while. I know it has got various reviews; some love it some don't. I am still curious about it.


I also bought this beautiful book on how to decorate your home with books. A lot of nice ideas. I just wish I had a bigger flat. I enjoyed looking through it while taking a cappuccino and banana bread at the nice café on the second floor. Situated on a terrace towards inner yards of the surrounding houses, it was a peaceful and quiet place. They even had some hanging chairs that would have been nice to linger in. Unfortunately, occupied. I got a comfortable chair though with the black one on the photo.

I love book stores like this, where you can walk around looking at books and then rest your tired feet in a café. I think it will not be the last time I go there. They even serve breakfast which could be nice to try.
