Six, seven, eight, nine, ten Then I threw him back again.

Maxine, following the nursery rhyme, suggests the following (six) questions:

  1. Which was the last book you borrowed from the library?: Afraid I have not borrowed any book recently (at least for the last forty years).
  2. What is the most recent e-book you read?: Have no e-reader, although I’m planning to read soon The Cosy Knave by Dorte Hummelshøj Jakobsen, in PDF.
  3. What was the last translated book you read? (If the answer to this is the same as any of your other answers, substitute the question with: The Quarry, by Johan Theorin.
  4. What was the first book you read this year?): Three Seconds, by Anders Roslund & Börge Hellström was the first book read on translation this year.
  5. Which book is at the top of your Christmas [insert appropriate festival] list? Absolute Zero Cool, by Declan Burke.
  6. Which so-far unpublished book are you most looking forward to reading? Perfect People, by Peter James, although it has been released last week, 27 October 2011.

One Book, Two Book, Three Book, Four… and Five…

I found on Margaret’s blog Books Please the following meme: One Book, Two Book, Three Book, Four… and Five…, by Simon at Stuck in a Book. I think it’s a fun one and I have decided to give it a go. Here are my five books.





  1. The book I’m currently reading: Outrage, by Arnaldur Indridason. I’ve just started reading. Indridason is one of my favourite writers.
  2. The last book I finished: The Quarry, by Johan Theorin. Another favourite of mine. A clear five star book. Highly recommended.
  3. The next book I want to read: Trackers, by Deon Meyer. Another of my favourite authors. And as I’ve heard his best book so far.
  4. The last book I bought: Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, by Tom Franklin. I could not resist after such favourable reviews by Bernadette and Maxine, whose views I highly appreciate.
  5. The last book I was given: A Vine in the Blood, by Leighton Gage. An advance uncopyedited edition sent to me by the author. Like Leighton I love Brazil, where I spent two years of my life.
