My #BookSpinBingo card for December is ready.

The empty spaces for books 16, 13 and 20 represent library books that I can‘t extend and I‘m not sure I‘ll get to them in time. So these might be switched and I want to write in the correct book.

I‘ve already started my #BookSpin book - a tribute to the Christmas tree. I‘m also looking forward to my #DoubleSpin - another Christmas book.

I had such high expectations for this novel after seeing some raving reviews. And I love the cover. And it started out really good too. I loved the first few pages, but then the story started jumping around and I stopped caring. I‘m not sure if it‘s because I don‘t know enough about Iranian history, that it was the wrong time for me to read this or the writing or all three.

But at least for now it‘s a DNF.

charl08 Oh no! I hate it when this happens. So much anticipation... 2d

A young man is found dead in the boat he lives in. We follow three women, Laura, Carla and Miriam. Laura was seen near his home at the time of his death and has a history with violence. Carla is his aunt. Miriam is his neighbor, living in an other boat and is the one who finds him.

We get these women‘s stories and we are not a part of the police investigation. And I‘m not sure I liked that way of telling the story. Also I didn‘t care to find

I loved reading about Bernardine‘s life and her journey to where she is today. I especially loved the stories behind her books and influences.

I‘ve wanted to read her backlist since I read “Girl, Woman, Other” and I‘ve read “Mr. Loverman” earlier this year. After this book, I‘m more keen on that than ever.

Maybe next year will be the year I read the rest of her books?

This was a good reminder to always remember to check what language a book is before borrowing it from the library. When I opened the book, I found out that this was in Danish and not Norwegian.

This is about a boy that spends a Christmas with his dad. This didn‘t make much of an impression on me and I‘m already starting to forget it.

A woman is writing about an unknown author. As she writes her reality and the past blur into each other and the past starts writing it‘s own story.

As more storylines were introduced to the story, I found it harder to know who was telling each one and she lost me a little. I also found the blurriness between realities/ timelines confusing.

This book taught me so much about the importance of a street address. It‘s said somewhere in the book that getting a street address is the easiest way to get out of poverty.

I also loved how she used examples for all over the world including India, Berlin, Japan, Iran and South Africa. And how different cultures view streets differently and how street names can be political.

I really enjoyed these stories in the universe of the Anne books and especially the references to Anne in some of them.

I also particularly enjoyed the stories “The Courting of Missy Strong” and “The Miracle at Carmody”, probably because they are so similar to some stories in the Anne books.

And the story “Old Lady Lloyd” about an older woman doing what she can for an old beau‘s daughter was so sweat.

In another study, Boroditsky and her collaborator, Alice Gaby, gave various subjects a set of pictures that, once placed in the right order, told a story - a man aging, for example, or a banana being eaten - and asked them to put the shuffled cards in order. English speakers arranged the pictures left to right, the same way the subjects read and write in their own language. Hebrew speakers would, on the other hand, organize the pictures in

AnneCecilie chronological order from right to left - the way they read and write. But the Kuuk Thaayore people arranged them in a pattern from east to west, a pattern that changed depending on the direction they were facing. If, for example, they were facing south, they placed the cards left to right. But if they were facing north, the order was switched from right to left. So Shelton‘s theory, connecting language to the way we think about space, makes a lot 3w

The second book in the Frieda Klein series. This time she gets involved in a case where a dead man is found in the home of a mentally unstable woman. The police is ready to put the case away as solved, but Freida is not so sure and does some investigation on her own like finding out who the man is.

I had a feeling we had not seen the last of Dean after finishing the first book and I was right.

Now on to borrow the third book.

I didn‘t read the blurb for this before I started reading, and I probably should. This book was not what I thought it would be.

Every essay start with Kendall talking about the subject on her own life before she broadens the argument. She covers subject such as gun violence, poverty, stereotypes and abortion. Some of these arguments felt very American to me and maybe that‘s why I preferred her essays on stereotypes because they are more easily

AnneCecilie transferable to other countries. I‘m glad I read it, I just thought it would be more universal. 1mo

Family Lexicon | Natalia Ginzburg

In the introduction Ginzburg writes that she has written about her family and friends but that we should read this as fiction and not nonfiction since these are her memories. She was born in 1916 and we find out what it was like growing up in Mussolini‘s Italy as a Jew and the war and the years after.

This is a relatively short book, but there‘s a lot of characters in here, her parents, siblings, friends and as she grows up, in-laws and

AnneCecilie her own kids and nieces and nephews. For me there where just too many people. It‘s a week since I finished and I have already started to forget the book, that‘s why it‘s getting a so-so and not a pick. 1mo

A goldeneye duck. They‘re so beautiful. Perhaps it‘s here alone for the winter because there‘s no female around. We rarely think of all that effort being made below the water, those webbed propellers whirring so the bird can glide with such ease and grace on the river. It‘s just like being autistic. On the surface, no one realises the work needed, the energy used, so you can blend in and be like everyone else.
