Maxine, following the nursery rhyme, suggests the following (six) questions:
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Which book is at the top of your Christmas [insert appropriate festival] list? Absolute Zero Cool, by Declan Burke.
- Which so-far unpublished book are you most looking forward to reading?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.
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.
- The book I’m currently reading: Outrage, by Arnaldur Indridason. I’ve just started reading. Indridason is one of my favourite writers.
- The last book I finished: The Quarry, by Johan Theorin. Another favourite of mine. A clear five star book. Highly recommended.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
