Christmas reading

Christmas is over for this year. We had a quite Christmas here in Mallorca. Beautiful Christmas mass in the Cathedral of Palma to get a little bit of tradition to an otherwise rather untraditional Christmas. At least for a Swede. No snow here, just lovely sunshine, blue sky and around 20 degrees C.

The Content Reader

As you see from my December reading I have managed quite a few books this month. I also got two books for Christmas; Blå stjärnan by Jan Guillou - the fifth instalment in Guillou's family saga of the 20th century and from my geology studying son, Fossiljägarna (The Fossil Hunters) by Björn Hagberg and Martin Widman. One of the big mysteries of evolution when and how 'the fish went ashore'. I love these kind of books and have already started reading it. Have a look at the wonderful book marks, also a present from my son.

The Content Reader

I see many of you have already done a summary of your 2015 reading. Since I expect to read at least one more book before the end of the year, I will post my summary after the new year. I have also reflected on how to proceed with blogging and other interests in 2016, as well as a list of my favourite books this year. All in good time.

Thank you all for sharing my love for books and being friends out there. I wish you all

A Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year to you too. I love the book about the fossils but I love fossils. I hope you enjoy it, Another year of books has come to an end and I am ready for a new year. Hope you are too. All the best in 2016.

    1. Thank you! The fossil book was very interesting. I was not aware that some Swedish scientists were specialists on the subject in the beginning of the 20th century.
      I am also ready for a new reading year and am looking forward to see what it has in line for me!
      All the best in 2016.
