I bought most of them, but on different occasions. I have yet to buy Patrick Hamilton, J.G. Ballard and the two Paul Scotts. They are rather pricey, I must admit! Perhaps another time.

Your study must be a veritable library. ^_^
Eric, are you one of those who buy ten books for every book that they've read?
My addiction is now tightly controlled -- I only buy three books for every one that I've read. ;-)

You are right, I am one of those people who actually buy more books than they can read at any one time. It's a hard habit to break. I still need to work on my addiction! For what it is worth, I am getting better! the problem is, I always gravitate towards the bookshops whenever I am in the mall. The solution is not to go to the malls, but work somehow always bring me there. And there's no knowing what's going to happen next!
