GOOD BOOKS FOR YOUR WEEK-END

02/05-06/2011

 

 

When you’ve exhausted yourself for a few hours with digging your way out of snow trenches,

is there anything better than dive into a good warm book?

I don’t think so.

And in case you have no clue what to read during this coming week-end, here are some suggestions:

The Woman in White, by Wilkie Collins
The Cairo Trilogy, by Naguib Mahfouz
The Planet in a Pebble: A Journey into Earth’s Deep History, by Jan Zalasiewicz
A Mountain of Crumbs, by Elena Gorokhova
Castle Waiting, by Linda Medley
Eucalyptus, by Murray Bail
Parrot and Olivier in America, by Peter Carey
A Wild Sheep Chase, by Haruki Murakami
Under The Greenwood Tree, by Thomas Hardy
The Morville Hours, by Katherine Swift
13 rue Therese, by Elena Mauli Shapiro
West of Here, by Jonathan Evison

Right now, I’m reading Company for Henry, by P.G. Wodehouse and listening to The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson. Sorry to say, I just gave up on At Home, by the same author. It’s certainly a good book, the idea is good: going from one room to another in your house,  and talking about all the inventions and history behind all that’s related to that room. I was learning lots of interesting things, but I found it quite boring in tone, and gave up after one CD. I guess you just need to be in the perfect mood for that type of book.

 

AND YOU,

WHAT WILL YOU BE READING THIS WEEK-END?
