My first challenge this year is taking part in Darcy's Artful Readers Club.
We have to choose 12 books for the year, one for each month - the intention being to post a review of the book we've read (by the end of the month) and also to produce a piece of art work inspired by the book.
Here are my 12....from the pile of at least 50 books beside my bed...I read a LOT but have been using my Kindle whilst still buying hardbacks of my favourite authors.....I decided I had to do something when the latest "Scarpetta" arrived and I realised I had the two previous books still to read....
And here is the book I've chosen to read first:
"Le Champ du Potier" by Andrea Camilleri.
Camilleri is Italian and his books are written in Italian with a large pinch of Sicilian dialect. My copy is in French (sadly I don't speak or read Italian).....why French you ask? Well....I have a problem with the English translations...they're done by an American who has used the Bronx as Sicily.....and they just don't read right.
