February comes with the Venice in February reading challenge, hosted by Bellezza and myself, and I am so looking forward to reading about Venice and rediscovering this amazing city. You can join us here, and the only rule is that you have to read at least one book Venice-related. The blog also has a long list of books about or set in Venice, so you only have to bring your mood with you... Here's what I am going to read and hopefully post about:
Peter Ackroyd's Venice, a Pure City (a non-fictional book about the city, comprising architecture and history)
Thomas Mann's Death in Venice (a reread, together with Bellezza)
Michelle Lovric's The Book of Human Skin (set in Venice, the story seems quite good)
Also, check the blog for everything Venice - related: music, history and art.
LET THE CARNIVAL BEGIN! :)
