It’s difficult to believe we are mid August: in Chicago, it already feels like the Fall, that is, way too cold for me and sounds like most song birds are already gone to warmer spots…
This week, on the reading front, was quite an event, with finally the English publication of Murakami’s latest novel: Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage
- Madame Picasso, by Anne Girard, for Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours. Review scheduled for 8/28. Wow, an amazing book on Picasso and 2 very important women in his life, especially his muse Eva Gouel.
- Toi qui as soif de bonheur, by Jean-Pierre Longeat. French spirituality book received for review for Collectanea Cisterciensia. Review coming up tomorrow!
- Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, by Haruki Murakami. Just for the pleasure of reading Japanese Literature! First half read in 1 sitting, loving it!
- Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled, by Dorothy Gilman. Audio. This is #14 and last of the series. So sad this is the last one. I enjoyed so much this series and its amazing narrator Barbara Rosenblat. In this one Mrs. Pollifax goes to Syria.
