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.
BOOKS & REVIEWS
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)
POSSIBILITIES FOR NEXT YEAR
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.
