Changing blogging domain and site

Dear blogger friends, Lately, I had a few problems with the Blogger web site for my blog The Content Reader . I took this as a sign that I should finally create a web site of my own. I have been checking out other options, but could not get my act together. Finally, I have managed to create a basic web site with Wix, which I hope will be developed over time.  It has not been easy to find my way around. One thing one can say about Blogger is that it is easy to work with.  This site will no longer be updated Follow me to my new domain @ Hope to see you there.  Lisbeth @ The Content Reader

Six in Six - 2022 Edition

I used to participate in this meme, but somehow lost it. Now I am reminded of it by Emma and Marianne and decided to join in again. It is hosted by Jo at The Book Jotter (head over there for more details. Jo explains the idea:

"The idea being that as the end of June approaches and we are then halfway through the year, let us share the books we have read in those first 6 months. In fact let’s share 6 books in 6 categories, or if time is of the essence then simply share just 6 books. Whatever combination works for you as long as it involves 6 books. Of course the same book can obviously feature in more than one category."

There are a lot of categories so visit her page for inspiration. I have chosen the following six categories with authors and books. I list all of them alphabetically. 

Six new authors to me

  1. What a great list, Lisbeth. I have enjoyed doing this and am happy that some new people have taken this on. And to bring you back is even better. I always enjoy your lists.

    I haven't read any of the books you mention but I have "Hamnet" on my TBR pile. And of your authors, I have read Arnaldur Indriðason, Colm Tóibín, Paulo Coelho, Ernest Hemingway, Anne Tyler, and Henrik Ibsen, quite a few.

    Thanks for doing this. My Six in Six.

    1. Thank you Marianne, definitely some of my very favourite authors this year.

  2. I'm overwhelmed at the quantity of books you've read! I'm having a good year and not anywhere close! That's an interesting list, too.

    1. Well Jeanie, this year has turned out well to start with. I have had time to read, and many of the books I have read has been very good.

  3. So happy for you you discovered Balzac this year. And I'm glad my post encouraged to go back to this meme

    1. Me to, Emma. It was a nice acquaintance. I did read La Pere Goriot and like that one as well.

  4. Thank you very much for joining in - Sorry having to post as anon as Google/Blogger playing up and I cannot even use the other option

    Glad to have you back and lots of lovely bokos for everyone to check out.

    1. My pleasure. I used to do this before from time to time, and I liked putting the items together. Yes, there is a problem with blogger for the moment it seems. I had the same, but I could manually change it to my google account and then it came back automatically.

    2. I have nothing but problems with the blogs at the moment, mostly with other bloggers who are on WordPress, so I don't know whether it's Blogger or them ...

    3. Marianne, it seems to be the way. Mine has now stabilised at my Lisbeth google account again. Before, I had to change it manually.
