    Where are our Nordic authors? :/

    Audrey said...

    Oooh! I've read some! One of the Jane Gardams and the two Muriel Barberys (I loved The Elegance of the Hedgehog). She's not on the list, but I have a book by Anna Gavalda that's in a Europa edition for Paris in July - my first time reading her.

    Frances said...

    Oh, I have some work to do! I've only read eight - make that nine. Loooved Hygiene and the Assassin.

    Suzanne said...

    Hmmm, I might take you up on this challenge. It sounds great. I just need a little more time to look over the Europa website. Great idea!
