I'm pretty sure no one is interested buy my medievalist heart compels me to review this. It was my first book read in Medieval French and it took me sooooo long.
A compilation of 100 short stories, a la Decameron or Canterbury Tales. A bit funny and a bit violent (like most things medieval) it stands as one of the great books of short stories of the period. Of course I loved it, but then again medieval weird humor is my cup of tea.

AlaMich Medieval French, huh? 🙇‍♀️ 12mo
Avanders Sounds interesting! Though maybe not the medieval French part 😁 12mo
ofbooksandme @AlaMich Yeah, it's like my thing. But at first it killed me. French is my third language and I'm only at an intermediate level so going medieval was certainly a challenge. But my PhD is going to be in Medieval French lit so I couldn't pick! 12mo
ofbooksandme @Avanders Yeah, don't do that hahaha. But on all honesty I didn't get some of the jokes till I went to at least the modern French version to check. In translation is sooo much better lol. 12mo

Hour 7 of the readathon, which might not be a lot for some but for me is a great accomplishment. I'm happy I took the time to read this weekend in between all the PhD work.
My boyfriend is out having lunch with friends so I said "Why not?" and came to eat by myself.

I wasn't going to participate because I had to study, but since studying involves reading...why not? I do need the motivation.
I don't know if I'll read anything else but we'll see.
