Welcome to my weekly update for December 28, 2015!
I hope everyone who celebrates had a wonderful Christmas and everyone else had a great week! Did you get some goodies? I got quite a few bookish gifts.
The Dictionary of Imaginary Places by Alberto Manguel; an adult coloring book; a puzzle featuring a bunch of book covers; The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Chris Riddell; Lonely Planet’s Beautiful World; and then in front a Pop! figure of Tyrion Lannister and some book earrings.
Nothing, but if you missed it, check out my Books in Translation Reading Challenge. You only have to read one book to be successful in this challenge! You can definitely read more if you choose though.
I’m planning to get my Southern Literature and Nonfiction Reading Challenge Sign-Up Posts up this week.
Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand, read by Erin Bennett
Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women by Geraldine Brooks
The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett, read by Michael Madsen, Sandra Oh, Edward Herrmann, and others
The Discreet Hero by Mario Vargas Llosa, translated by Edith Grossman
The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly is still a strong possibility.
