In which Jólabókaflóðið arrives a month early

New books.

In anticipation of shipping delays and supply issues, my husband suggested converting my wishlist into a few carts sooner rather than later. I like his thinking.

Since my last annotated list, I have read:

Glass Houses
Kingdom of the Blind
Two more mysteries by Louise Penny.

All’s Well That Ends Well
Only three works remain in my quest to reread all of Shakespeare’s plays this year.

Oedipus Trilogy: New Versions of Sophocles’ Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone (Trans. Bryan Doerries; 2021. Drama.)
I celebrated the publication of this collection by reading along with the three related Theater of War events.

The Power and the Glory (Graham Greene; 1940. Fiction.)
For the Cardiff BookTalk.

Franci’s War: A Woman’s Story of Survival (Franci Rabinek Epstein; 2020. Non-fiction.)
For a Gross Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies Home program.

The Mayor of Casterbridge (Thomas Hardy; 1886. Fiction.)
With the folks behind the fabulous The Readers Karamazov podcast.

Faust (Goethe (trans. Margaret Kirby; 2015); 1808. Drama.)
My fall book group concluded last weekend.

The Inferno of Dante (Dante Alighieri (trans. Robert Pinsky; 1995); 1320. Poetry.)
With 100 Days of Dante.

What Happened to Paula: On the Death of an American Girl (Katherine Dykstra; 2021. Non-fiction.)
Related article here.

Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature (Linda Lear; 2007. Non-fiction.)
This excellent biography satisfies one of my reading challenges.
