As we left, I saw a huge room with more boxes of books through the window. Walking away was hard, but necessary.
And I forgot to look for the things I went there for.
And I have no idea why Blogger turns the picture around. It has never done it before. Any ideas?
Donna Tartt - The Secret History. I have read and loved it twice, but never owned it. Now I have a tattered Norwegian copy.
Karen Armstrong - A History of God: The 4,000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Looked really interesting.
Anne B. Ragde - Berlinerpoplene & Eremittkrepsene. Very famous Norwegian books that I haven't read.
Emmanuel Carrère - D'autres vies que la mienne. I've read Carrère before, before being fluent in French. I thought I should try another one now that I will understand 100%.
Morris Bishop - The Penguin Book of the Middle Ages. This just looked interesting.
Sándor Márai - Embers. I've been wanting to read something Hungarian for a long time.
Herta Müller - The Land of Green Plums and Even Back Then, the Fox Was the Hunter. Ever since she won the Nobel Prize and I heard of her I've been interested in reading some of her books.
Kazuo Ishiguro - Never Let Me Go. A friend of mine read this book recently and really liked it, and I haven't read anything by Ishiguro at all.
Monique Truong - The Book of Salt. I get the impression I see this book everywhere and I took that as a sign.
