I ordered four books from Book Depository - way cheaper than Australian book stores and with free shipping as well.
- Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - I'd been meaning to read this for a while. I have a weakness for books like these (19th century science-fiction/horror). It was pretty good, but not particularly stand-outish.
- Cracks by Sheila Kohler - I love the movie starring Eva Green. This was the main reason I wanted to read it, which I bought because I hadn't seen it in any libraries. This would be one of the rare instances where I like the movie better: the plots of both book and film are a bit lacking, but the book was very awkward to read, and not in a good way.
- The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie - I quite liked this one, I can see how Cracks was inspired by it. The plot was way better, though.
- Complete short stories of Roald Dahl - What can I say, I love Roald Dahl's short stories, especially the ones with twist endings. He is one of my favourite storytellers.

Sorry for the horrid indoor lighting in these pictures. I haven't had the time during the day to take pictures lately, and I didn't want to put it off anymore!
