My copy of The Talented Mr Ripley arrived today. Yay!
Unfortunately, it is not the edition I ordered. What is it with online booksellers not listing the right editions? I wanted the one with the older black and white cover... :(
Anyway, I won't have time to replace it before Friday so I am going to hang on to this one.
One other thing I did want to mention is that I'll actually be away for a long weekend when the Buddy Read starts. It is Edinburgh Festival time. I am hoping to read the book on the train to and from Edinburgh and check in for posts and comments when I am at the hotel.
And who knows...maybe I find the edition of Ripley I wanted in one the countless second-hand bookshops...
