Gecko's Advent Calendar: Charity vs Amazon, Day 19

Eine kurze Geschichte von fast allem - Bill Bryson, Sebastian Vogel Die Unsichtbaren Stimmen - Carolina De Robertis, Cornelia Holfelder-von der Tann, Adelheid Zöfel Senyoria: Roman (suhrkamp taschenbuch) - Jaume Cabré

December 19,

My workmate and her 2year old were down with bugs today, so I had to cover her shift and am dead now. My bones are aching and my head drives me nuts. So I will hold this short and probably not very entertaining.


Books for today:


Bill Bryson - "Eine kurze Geschichte von fast allem": This is from my own books and will go to my uncle. Because I don't know if he reads at all, I thought this might be a book for a guy like him.


Carolina de Robertis - "Die unsichbaren Stimmen": "The Invisible Mountain" is for my aunt, who is member in a book club for ages, it's quite tricky to find something for her. I hope she doesn't know it already.


Jaume Cabré - "Senyoria": This is for me, because I liked his other book so much. It's historical fiction, Barcelona in the 18th century.



This results in 74 books from Charity against 95 Books from Amazon.
