I was tagged recently by fellow blogger Nuts4fruits to participate in a meme about books. Well, alright, I'll do a meme once in a while. The rules are:
1. Take pictures of the books you are currently reading and add them to your post. (I'm skipping that part)
2. Describe the books and if you are enjoying them.
3. For every book you are reading, you have to tag one person.
4. Leave the person a comment letting them know you tagged them. . Um, what am I reading now... Just last night I finished “Une année chez les français”, a very enjoyable novel about a small Moroccan village boy sent to the grand French high school in Casablanca, what he does there and what he thinks of all of it. Screamingly funny, wonderfully poignant. I suppose if I finished it, it doesn’t count for the meme. It’s the first work of fiction I’ve read in a while. . Read a few pages of the Grand Marabout de Bridge last night, which I leaf through sporadically, filling in my weak spots like defensive card signaling and slam bidding. As long as there are pages I haven’t gotten to, and I've actually picked it up in the past month, it counts as reading, right? Some day I will remember this stuff at the table. . Picked up Nelson Mandela’s autobiography from my to-read shelf and made a slight start. I would normally work at getting a copy in English, because I avoid reading translations when I can help it. But I was in the shop, and I wanted the book, and I knew if I went home and put it on a list somewhere I’d never get to it. Would likely never get it on a list, and it would be one of the hundreds of books I meant to read but forgot about. I can’t tell you much about it yet. Nelson has only just described his name and what it all means and that “Nelson” was only acquired at entrance to school. All I can say is it’s very readable so far, entertaining and meaningful, and we all know the story is headed for great events. .
And now for the tags:
