  1. Your Book Activity - April 2017

    Hi there! April seems to be a good month for reading Just finished Goethe's The elective affinities and The loser, which is a novel by Thomas Bernhard centered on a fictional relationship between pianist Glenn Gould and two of his fellow students. I didn't enjoy the former so much, but really loved the latter. (And once again, sorry for my poor English)
  2. Food in Books

    Hi there! My book club is going to have a special event in a couple of months: we will celebrate the end of our "bookish season" with a dinner based on books we've read so far. Being italian, we have plenty of italian fiction books with delicious recipies in them.. food becomes a sort of "character". So, I was wondering.... have you ever read novels where dishes or recipes were described? Is food important in non italian fiction too?
