Penguins Challenge

image

Penguin Books launches their Christmas Book-a-Day challenge, Season’s Readings. Here are my answers for the first 4 days.

1. Iconic first line
“The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.” The Go-Between by L.P. Hartley

2. Last read
A Time to Kill by John Grisham, actually one of the best reads this year.

3. On my Christmas list
On my wishlist is All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel by Anthony Doerr

4. For chilly nights
Any Agatha Christie would do, but I’ll go for Peril at End House, which I haven’t read.

  1. I also do the Penguin challenge on my blog 🙂 Fun to see yours! Anthony Doerr’s book is also on my wishlist but didn’t make it on my challenge list. Enjoy the next ones – cheers, Sabine
