Books I’ve read since the end of January

I love books, I love reading. The thrill of entering a different reality, the turning of the pages, a beautifully published book, well, simply books. I love them and am always interested in what others are reading so in case anybody would be interested in what I have recently read, here is a list put together in no particular order and without full bibliographical data but hey, there’s google. I hope you enjoy it and feel free to ask me about any of the belowmentioned as many of the books have just recently appeared on the market. I am certain I have forgotten some books because I do not keep a list and am relying on my memory. I will also make sure to post brief comments about them, hopefully soon. I have bought many of  the books after meeting the authors at the Shakespeare and Company Bookstore in Paris so if you’re here, do stop by on any Monday at 7 p.m. It’s worth it.

So there, the list:

Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Albert Camus, L’Etranger
