And yet another challenge…I don’t know, but there are so many tempting ones and I just can’t let them pass.
Ally from Snow Feathers and Bellezza from Dolce Bellezza are hosting the Venice in February Reading Challenge. They have even created a dedicated blog just for that challenge – how great is that? Just look at the header picture and start dreaming! You can already find reading recommendations there and it will be used to link to all the reviews.
We have chosen Venice because it’s a unique city, with a dreamlike atmosphere and yet, with secrets to discover. Whoever visited Venice once still wishes to go back and this challenge may be the next best thing 🙂
I wholeheartedly agree. Venice is wonderful, even in summer when it is overcrowded with tourists. A great location for a reading challenge.
As it happens, one of the books recommended is already on my reading list for next year. All I need to do is make sure to read it in February. It is
- “Across the river and into the trees” by Ernest Hemingway
If I am going to read anything else I don’t know. Donna Leon would be a quick read and it would be great for Venetian atmosphere, but I really don’t care for Commissario Brunetti. He has NOTHING on Commissario Montalbano, I don’t know why so many people like him as much as they do. But I am digressing.
Do you feel like going on a short trip to Venice? Then join this reading challenge and enjoy that lovely city in February!
