Hmmm, 3/23. Two of which are picture books. I bought Me Talk Pretty One Day years ago. I should read it. And Dickens, I really need to read Dickens.
Update 2016 now 4/23. Abysmal.

I've read six of these books.
Next year we may not leave the country but Paris is on our horizon, assuming all goes well.
I'm shocked that you have only read 3/23, but it's all good...lots of time when you return.
And now I'm doubly shocked...I've only read 6/23. I thought we were the Paris Readers of the Universe.
I got 6 but like you, half of those were children's picture books :-)
When you return, read Suite Française but try to avoid reading the dust jacket or a synopsis. It is memorable.
