Gecko's Advent Calendar: Charity vs Amazon, Day 7

Winter in Maine - Gerard Donovan, Thomas Gunkel Die Eleganz des Igels: Roman - Muriel Barbery The Interpretation of Murder - Jed Rubenfeld

December 7,

Coming back from a night of babysitting at my sister, I'm a little bit tiered right now and my bones are aching from a night on the couch. I'm getting old ;)

I've got a nice green chocolate Santa from Mr. Gecko yesterday. He now lives between my books before I kill him. Chocolate Santas are the best, if you give them the Queen of Hearts treatment: "Off with his head!", right into the mouth... *mampf*


Here are the books of today:


Gerard Donovan - "Winter in Maine": Sounds English, doesn't it? But it is the translation of "Julius Winsome". Dark and gloomy, I hope it will please my workmate, who is a little bit of a metal hipster, if something like that exists.


Muriel Barbery - "Die Eleganz des Igels": This goes to the trainee we have this year doing her intern with us. We were all there at someday, and the story of the concierge might help a little to get through with her year, being the lowest of the low, with more working hours than all of us.


Jed Rubenfeld - "The Interpretaion of Murder": This is for me, it sounds good and I god a little bit of taste for murder mysteries this last year.
