I met up with my foreign authors book group last night to discuss A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka (click on title for more of my thoughts). I wasn’t as impressed with the book as I expected to be but it was a quick read. I think everyone found the book an easy one compared to some of the other books we’ve read this year.
Next year we are starting off the year with Ines of My Soul by Isabel Allende. I have a lot of Allende books but this is one that’s missing from my shelves. I think this means a trip to the library is a must.
Of course while waiting for book group to start I wandered around and found the latest issue of World Literature Today. This is one of those magazines I want to subscribe to but then I remember how many subscriptions already arrive in our mailbox. What do you think? Should I go ahead?
Anyway, today was another exciting day of bookbinding. My first book is done! It’s sitting under some heavy books right now and I can’t touch it for the next 24 hours but I will be showing pictures because I really want to show it off. Hee.
