Just for fun, I decided to pick books with place names in the title. I could have easily picked ones with home in the title or days of the week.
In fact in getting my ideas for today I tore apart my bookshelves and re-shelving will be the mental health exercise later today or tomorrow.
A note about the titles that caught my eye, I only picked from my bookshelves this time. No e books. Sunday feels like the time for coffee, paper pages and wishing their were no dirty dishes, unwashed clothes or unreturned messages.
The Cellist of Sarajevo By Steven Galloway
I was a little intimidated to start this book as I had heard so much about it and I am often intimidated by ‘classics’ just as much as I am offended by book club picks.
It was a keeper. I have read it at least twice and it is on my list for recommending to friends .
The Piano Shop on the Left Bank The hidden world of a Paris atelier By T.E. Carhart. This is not fiction but it reads like a wonderful little gem.
Last but not least , a pretty famous author. Must love; Catcher in the Rye, must love the minutiae and be prepared to flip back and catch a detail you missed the first time.
The Mysteries of Pittsburgh By Michael Chabon
