  1. I am reading Le Cache with my French book group …..I have also read The Kamel Daoud ( I’m guessing that’s why you’re rereading L’Etranger. It will be great to compare notes when you have read them too ….although I have yet to start Le Cache.

    I am stuck in a Modiano whirlpool …his writing keeps sucking me in and I’m reading one after another. I got 4 for Xmas …I just gave my family a list ! His style is hypnotic ….and Paris just seeps into each book.

    Happy reading …..Bon Lecture !

    • yes, I plan to reread Camus for Daoud. Ah, what a nice whirlpool to be stuck into! One of these days, I’ll reread Rue des boutiques obscures, my local college library even has a French copy, exceptionally!

    • thanks, my average for 2015 was 9/month. My big secret is that I don’t have TV, so I usually spend several hours reading every night after work, dinner, and dishes (no: I listen to an audiobook while doing the dishes, another big secret revealed!)
