Book Haul: Helsingborg

This weekend, me and my family went down to visit the town of Helsingborg in the southern parts of Sweden, to celebrate that my sister graduated earlier this year (congrats, sis!). It was a cozy weekend and on our last day we went by a Book Outlet store in the outskirts of town.

These are the beauties I walked out with! I am very happy with my purchases - they are not the kind of books that I would have spent money on in other cases, but that I still will enjoy reading and having on my shelf. And they were so cheap!


The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho | Goodreads | BookDepository
Brida by Paulo Coelho | Goodreads | BookDepository
Greek Literature: Poems and Prose by Lennart Breitholtz (Swedish) - Goodreads | Adlibris
Roman Literature: Poems and Prose by Gustav Karlsson (Swedish) - Goodreads | Adlibris

Since I read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, I have been wanting to read something else by him, so I am superexcited with both Brida and The Witch from Portobello! I am also very interested in ancient times but haven't read anything from either the Roman Empire or the Greek ancient world, and these books have chosen classical pieces from each era, which I hope will give me some kind of feeling for the lit back then. Unfortunatly, those books haven't been translated to english from what I can find :(

As you can see, I also got myself a pencil for calligraphy with ink down in Helsingborg. It's so beautiful I just had to buy it. And now I'm walking on clouds!

Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
