BOOK HAUL: BogForum

So last weekend I went to Copenhagen to go to one of – if not THE biggest – book conventions in Scandinavia: BogForum. I will be making some blog posts about my days on the convention later, but for now I am going to focus on the reason my arms, legs and back were all busted when I got home: My book haul.

I had brought a budget that I stuck to in order to not ruin myself with book purchases and I got a decent haul of 20 books. To be honest I would not have ended up with that many books if it was not for the fact that outside the convention center there was a tent selling books in English, whereas most of the actual con only had books in Danish. And the English books were dirt cheap so of course I bought a ton of them.

So here they are sorted and grouped by author.
