Only a visual teaser today, as I am so near to finishing this book and I plan on writing about it properly soon, so don't want to give anything away. It has been a wholly engaging story told in epistolary format, which I love.
Some hints--I decided it was only right to use a postcard as my bookmark in honor of the story, and the picture on the card fits in nicely with the theme--though careful, as it might not be exactly what you think, either. I picked the book up in honor of Women in Translation Month as the author is French. I'm still hoping to read one of these Dutch authors, but won't make a final choice until I finish this (and likely not until some time next week when I am back from my mini-vacation).
What a novel idea--finishing a book before starting a new one. I'm trying hard to whittle down my current reads stack and curb some of my enthusiasm for starting new books (and then letting them languish and never finishing anything at all). I think my 'must write about these books now that I have read them' stack is almost as large as and maybe at the rate I have been going almost bigger than my current reads pile. Maybe I am turning over a new leaf? Showing a little bookish restraint in any case.
Now if you'll excuse me, I am off to finish reading my book.
