The Book Corner / First Reads -- June 2018

Just looking over them now . . . not interested in the kids book or the true crime selection. maybe one of the others.

I have an Oberon cover that is for a DX -- probably would also be adaptable to a similiarly sized tablet. It's in good-ish shape. Leather still looks very good, though slightly worn. Inside has some very minor scratching and wear. Both plastic stiffeners are still there. At some point the bungee that holds it closed went missing, but the button is still intact. Not sure of the design -- Celtic hounds, maybe? Something Celtic for sure. :) Color is deep wine.

I have no need for it so I'll give it away free, but would ask you to pay for shipping. Will accept an amazon GC as payment. :)

Posted this elsewhere, but thought I'd share in a thread of it's own.

The Arlington County, VA library is doing a Big Book Read on line book club this summer -- the theme is #ohboytolstoy and the book is the P-V translation of War and Peace:

I've decided to participate as I can. There will be chats on FB Sunday evenings, a weekly wrap up podcast, and tweeting is encouraged. At the end of the summer the central library will host a viewing of one of the film versions.

I do think I've read this before, but probably an inferior translation, and I was in high school so likely missed A LOT! Not to mention what I've forgotten. :)

As far as I know, there is no requirement that you LIVE in Arlington to participate. You are supposed to register and there is a FB group to join for chats -- I'm not even sure if they'll be checking library registration. The FB group is a 'closed' group so I'm waiting to be officially "in". Reading doesn't start until June 1 or 2 so, not a big deal.

Absolutely none of these appeal to me in the slightest. I really wish they'd find just a good, decent mystery. >:( I've gone off 'thrillers' and 'suspense' -- they are often way too graphic and the others just aren't my thing.

Choices for April 2018 . . . . . the historical mystery set near the end of the war in Dresden, Germany looks good -- hope the translation is good!
