Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.
READ LAST WEEK
Last week I read a book in Norwegian for a change (haven't done that in a year or so). Nattmannen by Jørn Lier Horst is book 5 in an excellent detective series featuring Chief Inspector William Wisting. So far only book 6 in the series, Dregs, has been translated into English, but hopefully the rest will follow soon.
A while ago I won the first three books in the Jack Susko series by Lenny Bartulin from Booklover Book Reviews (thank you, Jo!). They attracted me for two reasons: The main character owns a used book store, and they are set in Sydney, my favourite city in the world, so I was delighted to be able to read them. I have started the first book, A Deadly Business (it has later been renamed Death By the Book) and so far it's pretty good. The best part is that Jack's book store is situated only two blocks from where I lived in Sydney, so I know the area quite well. Being able to picture the locations in my mind makes for a much more vivid reading experience. (It also makes me miss Sydney a whole lot...)
As usual I don't have anything particular planned - but I don't think it will be a mystery.
