So here’s our Christmas reading-loot this year, picked up from here and there.
On the left is Chotto-ma’s:
Unnatural Creatures – Stories selected by Neil Gaiman
The Diary of a Space Traveller & Other Stories by Satyajit Ray (we had to order this online)
The middle is mine:
A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
And the last is D’s (and what is his is mine, ha!):
Known and Strange Things by Teju Cole
The Road to San Giovanni by Italo Calvino
Many of you who read the blog have asked me for book recommendations, so I thought I’d start ‘Books On The Tiled Table’, where I share what I’m reading. If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know #onthetiledtable well. (Like a friend said, my table is a celebrity.) It’s where everything, from a book to a cup of coffee, gets put down. So this is No. 1 of those posts. #booksonthetiledtable
I wish you all a very happy Christmas! Have a wonderful holiday with family and friends, with good food and much laughter, and books and warm blankets and mugs of hot chocolate. I’ll see you back in a shiny new year. Till then, love and hugs!
