Post up to five books that say something about you/represent you, and then other bloggers can find out a bit more about you.
Already thinking about which books might be right (although I may change my mind before August 1st...):
- The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova, as I'm an archivist and am very familiar with historical research (although have never taken it too these lengths)
- The Namesake, by Jhumpa Lahiri, as I know what its like to live in a clash of cultures.
- The Wall Jumper, by Peter Schneider and Ian McEwan, as I was born and spent my early childhood in a divided (West) Berlin.
- The Eyre Affair, by Jasper Fforde, a caper through the world of many familiar books, and the first in the Thursday Next series.
- I guess Heidi, by Johanna Spyrie, might be an obvious final choice?
