Two weeks from now I’ll be on holiday in France.  Logic tells us therefore that I have checked far too many books out from the library.  Again.  But logic has no place in my library visits.

Will I read all of these before I go?  No.  But I’ll have fun trying.

There’s an interesting piece in the Financial Times this week about the rise of private libraries, illustrated with a picture of this beauty.

The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams – I can’t remember where I first heard about this book but it’s come up again recently in pieces about the pending end of Game of Thrones, as it was an inspiration for George R. R. Martin’s series.  I’m always up for epic fantasy but I’m going to be hard pressed to finish this 800-page door stopper before the due date  (Book Depository)

Strudel, Noodles and Dumplings by Anja Dunk – I have been so, so, so excited to get my hands on this new German cookbook.  And it’s completely lived up to expectations – I read it cover to cover the day it came in and now can’t wait to start cooking from it (Book Depository)

If Not, Winter translated by Anne Carson – I was in the mood for a bit of poetry and turned to this volume of Sappho, which I enjoyed when I read it a few years ago (Book Depository)
