So Long 2015 I’ll be back 2016


I’m following a lot of folks and signing off from the blogging and easing off social media  too 2016. I was original going blog, but as we both off for a rare Christmas day together and new years eve night together. I am working in between but want make most of this year as I missed so many Christmases in the past with family due to work. I have decided to not blog again to first week in January when I will bring you my books of 2016. As for reading I will soon be starting Peter Nadas Epic book of memories which I see taking me through to 2016. So from me I wish you a happy Christmas and new year.

    Enjoy your blog but haven’t commented before. How will you approach the Nadas? A certain number of pages a day or just however much you can each day? Do you take notes as you go? I have “book of Memories” on my (soon) tbr pile and thought I might read along with you🤔. Looking forward to your review and have a good holiday. Peg

      I think as much as I can manage every day I usually try for between 80 and 100 pages a day but imagine this may be less as he isn’t a quick writer to read as I found when I read parallel stories

    Hope you are enjoying Nadas’ BOM as much as I am. Took me a little while to get into the rhythm and sudden changes in story but after reading the first 50 pages twice am getting the hang of it. Just read the telegram scene which was hilarious! Thanks again for getting me interested in translated lit with your blog. Hope to make 2016 my year of translations! Looking forward to your thoughts on this.

    Merry Christmas, Stu, to you and Amanda. Thanks for enriching my reading with your passionate blog and inspiring me several years ago to read translated literature. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that!
