In response to Bluebookbelle’s Bookish Photo A Day Challenge – February 2015 #AWORphotoaday
Whilst looking for inspiration for this challenge my ‘Unread’ book gave me a sideways glance from the bookshelf! The disapproving frown said it all! Quite rightly so as I bought a bunch of books a while ago and read all but this one… It has remained in the bookshelf, almost forgotten but for the photo a day challenge prompt. Actually, now I’ve taken it out of the bookshelf (and soothed its feelings), I can’t believe I didn’t read it…and left it unread!
A Short History Of Tractors In Ukrainian
By Marina Lewycka.
I remember picking it up because of the references all over it. (That should have been enough!)
‘Extremely funny’ The Times
‘Outstanding’ Daily Mail
‘Mad and hilarious’ Daily Telegraph
‘Delightful, funny, touching’ Spectator
And this – ‘An extraordinary read…nothing short of amazing. A rare treat, all too easy to gulp down in one greedy sitting’ Daily Express.
I guess it’ll now go in my ever growing pile of ‘books to read’ – I promise!
Note to self: Don’t buy too many books at once! ;p
