Time to continue my Maigret journey. This is the third book I‘ve read in the series, and book number 18 published in 1934. Apologies for the poor cover. I‘m really enjoying this series. #CenturyOfBooks

Soubhiville Yay! When is your trip? It‘s such a lovely city. Of course there are lots of chocolate and candy shops- my favorite discovery was dark chocolate covered orange rinds- whoa! Also waffles from the street vendors. Mmmmm! 1mo
Mitch @Soubhiville we go at the end of the month (23rd)...... so far we have waffles, moules, grand old bookshops, comic strip murals, Palau‘s de Justice on the list PLUS - dark chocolate covered orange rinds 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 1mo
Susanita I hope you get to go to Bruges. It‘s very picturesque! 1mo
Blaire @Susanita @mitch I loved Bruges! The most memorable part of my trip there was the liege waffles. 1mo

Amelie Nothomb writes about monsters. Monsters that we hide in the depth of our souls, but you know it's there. It makes you feel uneasy for no reason wgen meeting someone new. Amelie Nothomb writes about people who decide to let their inner monsters run free...

I didn't know much at all about the Belgian Congo, and this book filled that gap. King Leopold of Belgian set up a private colony in the Congo for himself (not even for his country) and extracted rubber and millions of millions of $$$ while systematically destroying lives, cultures, and futures of the people who lived there. Horrific and under-publicized.

Oops I meant to do this yesterday but reading distracted me. 🤦

1.Goodreads goal was 85 and I just finished #220. I need two more on my MBC reading list and am a bit over half done with #nonfiction2019
2.I'm obsessed with researching and identifying bugs even though they terrify me. My friend used to send me pics of bugs he'd find on his walks to work in Ghana & ask for help id'ing them.

My biggest complaint was the lack of black voices in all of this. It might be due to the historical record, but the whole book was from a European perspective instead of Congolese who were tortured and exterminated. #audiobook
