#bookaday 8 books you have more than one copy

I don’t as a whole double up on books or so on ,my budget for books is tight so it has to be a bargain like these two I had these two I had the old orange penguins of each .The Waugh I brought as most of the waughs I have are these covers so want to complete the set at some point ,The Steinbeck I just loved the cover of this tortilla flats so it was 20p added to pile .I do like to try new translations when they appear and have thought of doing comparison post from one translation to other so I may double books up more but they be different actually .Why if you have various copies do you get them ?

#bookaday 7 a book you forgot you had

20140607-090911-32951320.jpg
Well I decide for today just go to my shelves and have a good look around and the first I saw and went oh yeah I brought that and haven’t read it yet .It was this Herman Hesse short story collection which I picked up a few years ago with German lit month in mind ,but also to remind folks Hesse had written other things apart from Steppenwolf ,Siddhartha and Glass bead game .I remember I stuck it to back of the shelves as the cover as you see is rather surreal ,but finding it this morning I think I will keep it now in mind for this years German lit month
What book had you forgotten ?
