2012 Challenge: I Love Italy Reading Challenge


Laura at the Library of Clean Reads is hosting an I Love Italy Reading Challenge.  Because of the irresistible overlap with my own European Reading Challenge and the Venice in February challenge, I signed up.

I went for the introductory, "Ciao Italia" level, to read 1 - 3 books.


Serenissima by Erica Jong (the book I read for the Venice in February Challenge; reviewed here);

A Bell for Adano by John Hersey (award winner -- Pulitzer; reviewed here)

The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain (reviewed here)

Dressed for Death by Donna Leon (an extra; not reviewed)


A Thousand Days in Venice by Marlena de Blasi (a Memorable Memoirs Challenge pick);

Maybe something else off my list of Venice books; or

At least one more of Donna Leon's Commissario Guido Brunetti mysteries.

Thanks! I started a book set in Venice this morning and already think this is going to be a very fun challenge.
