I just bought some literature today from two different online bookshops. Here is a link where you can see the books I bought from Bokus.
Since it’s in swedish you might not see exactly what is what so here is what I bought:
Christopher Hitchens - Thomas Paine’s Rights of man
Thomas Paine - Rights of man
These two books are for my dad. One of them is a biography about Thomas Paine the other one is the book Rights of man itself.
Lonely Planets travel guide to the city. I will be going there next month.
