One of the nice things about living in Kyoto is that small and used bookstores are still in big demand here. This could be because Kyoto is a cultural city that prides itself on its integration of old and new, and used bookstores sit very nicely in the mean. What’s even nicer is that there are a few English only used bookstores, where foreigners can dump their collections before returning home, to lighten their loads. It was at one of these stores that I picked up Conn Iggulden‘s The Death of Kings and The Field of Swords as part of my bid to read more authors I’d never heard of before. Unfortunately, in my rush to grasp hold of more books, I failed to notice that The Death of Kings is the second book in the series, and The Field of Swords is the third. Oops. It’s on my TBR list, but the first book is still on my Amazon wishlist.
OK, obviously I need some help with this one, guys. Have any good ‘I’ authors you can recommend me? Let me know in the comments.
