A Book Haul that Kind of Grew: Waterstones and eBay

Books laid out on a white wooden floor. In front is the text box with the post title in it

I have recently had a clear out of some of my books, I was planning on keeping my collection down until I have more room for bookshelves. Apparently that didn’t last long though, at least not when I end up in Waterstones! One of these books has been in my to buy list since it was first published in hardback though so that’s ok to get right?

I did also end up getting a couple of lots of manga from eBay. I have a few manga series that I’m part way through that I started ages ago, if you’re into manga or anime you will realise how long ago this was when you see which ones they are, and I found people selling them in sets on eBay for a decent price. Buying the few individual ones for one of the series could get expensive but I do want to finish them as they are some of my favourite manga and anime series of all time.

All of them are from the first generation of Pokémon except for Togepi but it’s been in Pokémon so long I always think it was.
