I got "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" for free on my kindle. I'm also reading Murder at Ford's Theatre by Margaret Truman. I have the next 2 Hunger Games books on tap for when I'm done with Mr. Holmes.

I've just started book #3 of a military sci-fi series called "The Lost Fleet". Mindless stuff, really, but kind of fun. It's full of space heroes, villains, distant worlds, and epic shoot-em-up battles. I'm hoping it will carry me into vacation in another week.

I'm just about finished with the book I am on and have not decided what I want to read next. I have a huge choice, about 40 books to decide from.

Buongiorno,

Every year, from the end of May through the 1st weekend of June, Madrid Capital holds its´ International Book Fair.

Last night, The Vet and I had gone for a lovely light dinner of Greek Meze at Delfo´s and browsed the book stalls ...

Our Purchases:

1. In the Garlic: A delightful bilingual book about the hurdles of cultural differences filled with whimiscal froth in English and Spanish and how to manage these differences in language ...

2. The Meaning of Tingo : This is about the oddities of our language and the potpourri of Linguistic useful terms in English and Spanish.

3. Silver Spoon : A phenomenal Cookbook on the numerous regional cuisines of Italia.

4. Focaccia : A lovely edition specialising in this Italian basic.

5. The Foods of Greece : This wonderful book contains terrific dishes from a favorite land and the cultural insights with authentic traditional recipes.

All were marked down 50% ... This was the best part ...

Have a lovely Sunday.
Ciao,
Margi.

Reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. It's free for the kindle app so I figured why not? Considering when it was written, it's pretty darn clever.
