My last book was a pan : too much torture, I hope Emma will be a nice palate cleanser ;)

Could not find the book in the database. The latest of an author that usually make me scream at the heros to not do the dangerous thing...

Sitting in front of a keyboard and a screen is work. Thousands of offices operate on this very principle.

Not much to do for work, so I can make a dent in the last book of that serie.

I was hesitating between this one and the Pratchett reflections... And I know that at one point I just have to read this even if it is probably not a happy book. so here I go.

Sometimes the book fits the setting and you are reading about fly fishing while your partner is on the river.
I could not tag the original version of the book only the translation.

Second day of vacation, first time reading as a strong headache seems finally gone.
Not liking this Arthur character... He is up to no good.

I am from the generation just before Mangas hit France, so I do not usually read them. This one is a gift from a friend to my partner and I am using it as an in between books. Not sure about the story and not liking the general sexism of it, but maybe I am missing context.

Il barone rampante | Italo Calvino

Practising Italian but I lost some since the time I was working there. Struggling makes reading slower and I tend to do anything instead of picking up my book which is normally my escape from everything...

I saw that penguin released some new audio books of Pratchett'S witches series, gifted them to a friend, and could not resist trying the xigxag app for myself. Anybody else using it? I like the idea of switching between audio and epub seamlessly.

Waiting for some friends to talk about books... Tea cake and an unusual Lady Agatha story.. I can wait ;)

vlwelser Is that the weird Egypt one? 4mo
catsuit_mango @vlwelser yes it's that one. I was thinking you could give a sample to read to anyone, they would not guess it's from her. 4mo

Discussion and meeting with the author of this challenging book, i learned new concepts and need to follow what will become the afro caraibian futurism.
Also he walked into the tea room where I was meeting my friends and I was the only one geeking out...

My first Ann Perry book and liking in so far, I am waiting for the resolution of the crimes to see if I add all her books to my Tbr...

catsuit_mango And another mention of the Prince of Wales had me drawing a family tree from Victoria to William just to understand which prince of Wales we are talking about this time (not the same as in Mrs dalloway ;)) 4mo

Mrs. Dalloway | Virginia Woolf
post image

When you are re-reading Mrs dalloway and this time you wonder who was the queen (and the prince of Wales) at that time, and you have to go to Wikipedia because that was before The crown times (the Queen was Queen Mary, Great mother of queen Elizabeth, and the prince of Wales was Edward, future king that married for love...) maybe I need a notebook of all I learned because of books ;)

After afro futurism, I am trying a Caribbean-futurism book, set in the caribbean Islands with the kreyol from Martinique. And the author will be giving a lecture in my town soon.
I can not help but wondering how strange it is to read when you don't have notions of kreyol ;)
