This is a month where I’ve been reading a lot of big nonfiction books in little chunks at a time so I haven’t finished any of them.
Here’s what I did finish.
The books were:
- 3 nonfiction
- 2 audio books
- Set in England, Spain, and the U.S.
The authors were:
- 7 unique white women, 1 African-American man, 1 African-American woman, and 1 Spanish man
Which ones would I totally recommend?
What books have I been nibbling at?
Jefferson’s Daughters was an audiobook that got auto-returned to the library on me. Caesar’s Footprints and Avignon are background for an upcoming trip. Fear is just … about Trump…. so it can only be handled in small doses. One Man and a Mule is so me but I put it down and forgot about it until the husband picked it up and now I have to share.
- Read a nonfiction book about the country – or
- Read fiction written by a native of the country or someone living for a long time in the country.
Costa del Churros is written by a British person who has lived in Spain for a long time so it counts but I’m reserving the right to replace it with something by a Spanish person. We Fed An Island is written by a Spanish person but doesn’t take place in Spain.
