Read in January 2012

So it seems that I have been a bit of a reading maniac this month. Alright, alright, so some of these books were those I had started reading last month, so that helped boost the numbers a bit (confession: it took me 9 months to read the Jules Verne!). I see the urgent need to read more non-fiction…. But first, to February and my attempt at reading mostly books in translation (the exceptions are the books from my previous library loot).

  1. Hee hee. Nine months. As of next month, I’ll have taken that long to NOT finish The Old Curiosity Shop. I’ll be interested to see what you’ve thought of the Grossman novel…I’m really looking forward to that one…
