Today was the first day both me and Mr. Gecko hat time to go to the "Weinachtsmarkt", we made the most of it, eating venisom and Spätzle, drinking "Feuerzangenbowle" and I bought a little tin gecko for my library and
a necklace watch hiding inside an owl.
So sweet. Look at it...
But enough of cute, useless stuff.
The books for today:
Chris Cleave - "Little Bee": This book goes to my cousin J., I think she will like it. I exchanged it with an English version of the book I got at Oxfam, which I will keep and hopefully read next year.
David Mitchel - "Der Wolkenatlas": This goes to the boyfriend of my other cousin, and yes, you got me there, this book should be read by more people ;)
Nathaniel Hawthorne - "The House of the Seven Gables": I didn't like the 'Scarlett Letter' but I will give Mr. Hawthorne a second chance.
