I LOVED Smila's Sense of Snow. I have History of Danish Dreams, but haven't gotten to it yet (as often happens when you have too many books waiting to be read!).Originally Posted by geek the girl;2309869;
With my thesis due date fast approaching, I haven't had much time to read for pleasure. I'm slowly making my way through The Rescue Artist by Edward Dolnick. It's about the theft of Edvard Munch's The Scream from the National Gallery in Norway. Nice short chapters, so I can get through one chapter quickly. I've also been reading The Devil in the White City by Erik Larsen, about the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. The book deals with the architects of the exposition as well as the serial killer who stalked the city during that time. Heavy reading, but really interesting and well-written. I'm sure I'll be finished with it by June!
