I love books! You know I really love books! My hallway at home is a ‘library’ of books and dust – books and magazines and dust (should I mention the National Geographic’s Collection?). Sometimes I think it is likened to a wine cellar. Similar to someone who collects fine wine over many years for their cellar / store … they purchase, sort, label and store the goods and then leave them there to collect dust so it looks prestigious and valuable.
For years, we simply kept our wines in racks on the floor, away from direct light and heat. We drank them long before they could be harmed, and we really liked them there because we enjoyed looking at them. We didn’t think of wine as something to be bought and put away. It was a part of our everyday life and our household, an omnipresent adventure beckoning in plain sight. (Gaiter & Brecher, Wall Street Journal)
You get the picture … books are part of my everyday life and I enjoy them in moderation and like to share them with my friends!
But seriously, books are a passion of mine and so I was a little bit excited to stumble upon a couple of blogs of 2015 related to books from around the world reading. So, I plan to have a go at this reading challenge.
The aim is to read and review books from different areas of the world, including at least one book / author from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
Plus, I have a new reading group / book club for 2019 with my mate Claire.
So let’s get ready!
