My first Book Depository orders

Let’s go down the memory line, and see what are my first ever English books I bought. The first ever book I attempted to read in English was of course Harry Potter. I was obsessed with this book, so it was an obvious choice for me to read it in English. I never actually completed this book… My first Book Depository orders don’t represent the books I read in English first, before I invested my own money into those books I was borrowing books from my aunt. But after a while her books weren’t enough, and I had an enormous fascination with Lena Dunham and feminism at this point (first one is long gone, second is still with me), so here are the books I bought at this time, back in 2015.

First order: January 6th, 2015

The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

by Adelle Waldman


I’m pretty sure I bough this book because it was mentioned in Lena Dunham’s book or mentioned somewhere by her. I loved this book. I don’t remember much of it right now, but when I think about the book I just remember that I enjoyed it. Maybe I’ll re-read it soon to check my feelings about it now?

Second Order: December 2nd, 2015

This time I bought a bunch of books, and majority of them I didn’t read to this day… But I’m still happy with those purchases and I intend to read them sooner or later. And my second order, was a big one…


Third Order: January 20th, 2016

What are your first orders from Book Depository?

    Interesting list of books.. I haven’t read any of them. I ordered for the first time last year and I bought 3 books, one of them never left their factory though so I was reimbursed for Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough). Another one was While I Was Sleeping by Dani Atkins but I haven’t read it yet 🙂

    I’ve wanted to make a post on this for a while too, looking back at my first orders and seeing what I had actually read (and which books are still unread on my shelves). It’s so fascinating to see what someone ordered! Fat is a Feminist Issue sounds like an interesting read, especially after you mentioned it was very emotional and important to you. I think I’ll add it to my to-read list!

    Wow, that second order is huge! I first discovered BD in 2015 as well, but didn’t really buy much from it cause I have my library and was still studying so I didn’t have an income yet :”) I feel like recently I’ve been in the mood to make huge orders like what you did 🙂
