Well, it's been a relatively plain ol' month of me buying things this month; but also a month of buying a brand new book too! What a great thing that is! I had been eying off a book for a long time; and finally, I bought it at the more expensive price! Yay!
Now, I only bought three books this month; but they were well worth forking out the money for. And I only bought them because I want to read them at some point.
The first book I purchased was 'The Lost Diary of Don Juan' by James Carlton Brams. It's a look at the man behind the myth of Don Juan and how the name became so famous throughout history and the world. I've yet to read it, but I do have it on my Mt To Be Read.
The next book was purchased a few days after the first (on 8th, August) and it is 'The Brain That Changes Itself' by Norman Doidge, MD. This book was turned into a television series that interested me greatly. It's about how people with average intelligence - or other things mentally wrong with them - can form new pathways in their brains and learn new things. It's called Neuroplasicity; and it's something that's been working for some time now for a lot of people with disabilities ranging from Autism to Stroke Victims; and it works. When I saw the book on the shelves, I wanted and bought it with a book voucher; and now I'm reading it. Very interesting stuff!
The third book is something I'm absolutely obsessed with: being left-handed. It's titled: 'The Left-Handed History of the World' by Ed Wright. It's about the people throughout history who have been known left-handers and have change the world in some way. It's a very interesting book; and I look forward to reading it soon.
So, there you have it. My book purchases for this month! Until next month's book purchases, I hope you keep reading as much as I am. I'll be back doing more reviews soon; my reading schedule has been a little slow for a few weeks as I've been busy with another project. Once that's finished, I'll be back doing what I love best.
