What are you currently reading?
I started The Coming of Hoole by Kathryn Lasky this morning. I adore the Guardians of Ga’Hoole series and find this book a brilliant addition to it. It tells the story of Hoole, the founder of the Great Tree of Ga’Hoole (which plays an important role in all the other books).
I’ve also begun The Knights of the Cross by Henryk Sienkiewicz as part of the Eastern European Books challenge. This book is particularly significant in Poland as parallels have been drawn between beating back the Teutonic Knights for the last time and the defeat of the Nazis, indeed it was the first book republished in Poland after the end of WW2.
What did you recently finish reading?
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The less said about this reading experience, the better…
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m waiting for my copies of Murder at Manfield Park by Lynn Sheperd and Peter the Great by J. Massie and should be trying to fill the time by reading The Arabian Nights and Cahier d’un retour au pays natal by Aimé Césaire.
