Went to the library this morning to pick up four holds. Here what they are and why I wanted them:
Poulet aux prunes (Motion picture)
This is the movie based on Chicken with Plums by Marjane Satrapi which I read a couple of weeks ago (see January 2015 Reads (week two)
The 100-year-old man who climbed out the window and disappeared by Jonas Jonasson ; translated from the Swedish by Rod Bradbury.
Got this because I liked his The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden so much.
The sound of the mountain. by Yasunari Kawabata, Translated from the Japanese by Edward G. Seidensticker. This is the second group read for January in Japan.
The Normandy diary of Marie-Louise Osmont. 1940-1944 by Marie-Louise Osmont ; introduction by John Keegan ; translated by George L. Newman.
This sounded interesting. For French Bingo Challenge (square D2)
Came home with those four plus three on the list I had:
Enon by Paul Harding.
Because I liked Tinkers and this is sort of a sequel.
Years of Red Dust : stories of Shanghai by Qiu Xiaolong.
Been wanting to read this for a while.
Relish : my life in the kitchen by Lucy Knisley.
Graphic memoir for Foodie Reads 2015 Challenge
Then there were the two impulse ones:
The strange library by Haruki Murakami ; translated by Ted Goossen.
Saw it on the shelf and said "Why Not?"
A pleasure and a calling by Phil Hogan.
Was delighted to see this one already on the shelf--just heard about it yesterday.
Do I have enough to read?
