Archive for December 13th, 2017


Last January I committed to read 150 books on Goodreads 2017 Reading  Challenge. The joy of reading, I just finished my 201st read last night, a story set in a Tuscan farmhouse.  It’s nice to go back reading  about the provincial life in Tuscany. This book though was more descriptive than conversational.  It was a light read so I finished it in one day.

Last February, I included A Man Called Ove in my bucket list for the year. Fredrik Backman  is definitely a gifted writer.  He was born in Stockholm, Sweden and he had his book translated into  English by another author. I got hold of his other books, Britt-Marie Was Here  and  another one entitled And Every Morning The Way Home Gets Longer And Longer. Lately though I found his other book called Beartown.

I haven’t actually started it yet but I noticed that it has mostly five-stars on  Goodreads.  Readers say it is different from his other books.  Looking forward to reading it  today. I hope it is as good as his A Man Called Ove.   Per my Goodreads’ virtual  library, this will be my 202nd  one this year.

I have more in store – Richard North Patterson, James Patterson, Ken Follett,  Stephen King,  Lang Leav (love her poems), Mary Oliver (of course) , Santa Montifiore and  Lisa Wingate to name a few.  There are more authors that I came across but I have yet to read their books.  Hopefully I’ll find time to read all these lovely  books. It is always nice to visit other places and learn about other cultures through books.  Hooray 🙂  ❤
