So I’ve mentioned that lately I feel like I’ve been reading the same books and making very little progress, and then I thought why not add some graphic novels to the mix. Certainly I’ll be able to finish a book or two sooner rather than later right? Well that wasn’t the only reason for adding some graphic novels to my list. I realized that I haven’t read any this year and I wanted to see if I could remedy that.
The first book is Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley. I loved her book French Milk and I’ve read good reviews of this one from some of you so I thought this would be a good choice.
The other graphic novel I had on hold is Julio’s Day by Gilbert Hernandez. This is the story of one man’s life from his birth in 1900 to his death in 2000. I have high expectations of this one.
And, before I left the library I took a quick peek at the new books shelf and In Times of Fading Light by Eugen Ruge caught my eye. How perfect that it’s another German book to add to my German Literature month reads. This is a generational saga from an East German perspective on half a century of history. I started this one last night.
So how about you? What have you checked out from the library?
