Vote on what books I should order

A poll! I am still figuring out how this works, but please vote…


  1. I voted for Lampedusa – not a popular choice unfortunately

    • Voting is probably closed by now but you got to read the Leopard (or Il Gattopardo – sounds so much better in Italian). It’s such a classic AND I would recomment the Visconti movie from the book, shot in the 1960s, with Alain Delon at the height of his youth playing the eponymous leopard and looking every bit the part (as in lethally gorgeous feline :)).

  2. Well, I voted for Mieville, but that was my suggestion anyway, no surprise there 🙂

    Eco’s The Name of the Rose is one of my favorite books, though I have had less luck with his other works.
