Europe, Memory, and the Heart: What I Read in 2019

2019 was my third year with Rose City Reader’s European Reading Challenge. The goal is to read books written by authors from, or set in, as many different European countries as we can.

My snapshot of Gustav Caillebotte’s “Paris Street; Rainy Day” at the Chicago Art Institute.

This year I read eleven books from four different European countries. Only one book per country “counts.”

Ross Poldark by Winston Graham (United Kingdom)

The Leopard by Giuseppe di Lampedusa (Italy)

The Jeweler’s Shop by Karol Wojtyla (Poland)

The Eight Doors of the Kingdom by Jacques Philippe (France)

I will join Rose City Reader in 2020 and aim for books from five different countries.
