November reads

First of all, instead of random book titles once in a while, I decided to do a monthly book recommendation post from now on. November was rather poor for me on that front, with only four full books finished, while I am also making progress with my first ever Spanish language book, and learning a lot. What I read in November included two classics, one Hungarian romance (sort of) and the long anticipated memoirs of former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan. Many might find strange that I have never read Lolita and The Great Gatsby before, but in Hungary neither…

Finally got my copy of Kofi Annan’s book!

I ordered it like seven weeks ago from Amazon, then I waited and waited and it hasn’t arrived. Then they sent me a replacement copy, then the original one arrived and for some reason I had to send the first one back and wait for the replacement which I ordered to an alternate address that is further away from me now, so I had to wait another week until I finally got my book in my hands… Anyway, shoutout to UKPaperbackshop for their plain-dealing client service, I’ve never had any dispute like this with any retailer and they really were…

P. G. Wodehouse: Big Money

P. G. Wodehouse: Big Money This and P. G. Wodehouse novels in general were recommended to me many years ago. This one actually sat on my shelf for years and somehow I never found the right time to pick it. I am glad I did now, during my week off of the summer, it is a perfect holiday read! I am not that much of a fan of so called English humor, not in books, neither in movies, but once in a while this kind of storytelling can really relax one’s mind. For Hungarian readers I have to note that…
