An Italian Adventure


It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
"It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" is a meme hosted by Sheila from Book Journey where readers share what they are currently reading, recently read, or plan to read next.



I am currently reading "Lambrusco" by Ellen Cooney, author of "A Private Hotel for Gentle Ladies."
From inside the cover: "The extraordinary Resistance movement of the Italian people during the Second World War is brought to life in a captivating, deeply moving story of a mother's search for her son."

I recently finished reading Agatha Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express." This was my book club's latest selection and it was marvelous! I definitely plan to read more of Christie if I can ever get through the stack of books I already have.

Book Giveaway

My new giveaway is a hardcover copy of "The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing" by Melissa BankFrom amazon.com: Hailed by critics as the debut of a major literary voice, The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing has captivated readers and dominated bestseller lists. Generous-hearted and wickedly insightful, it maps the progress of Jane Rosenal as she sets out on a personal and spirited expedition through the perilous terrain of sex, love, relationships, and the treacherous waters of the workplace. With an unforgettable comic touch, Bank skillfully teases out universal issues, puts a clever, new spin on the mating dance, and captures in perfect pitch what it's like to be a young woman coming of age in America today.

  6. I read The Girl's Guide to Hunting ages and ages ago. Have a good week.

    My favorite read last week was Amulet, Vol. 5: Prince of the Elves (audio) by Kazu Kibuishi. Please come see what else I'm reading.
