Back in June we went to the US for a couple of weeks to celebrate  my daughter’s wedding. While there, I went on a shopping spree, and stocked up on everything….clothes, shoes, instant soup, tea, spices, etc. Plus, and most important, tons and tons of new books.

Unfortunately, there was not enough room to stuff everything into our luggage, so we had to ship most of it home. Finally, after months of waiting,  our shipment has arrived.

All those glorious books!

Here, for your vicarious enjoyment,  is my reading list for the next couple of months.
