Finished reading The Odyssey. I remember reading bits of it here and there, but I am glad I completed the whole thing.
Just finished reading The Illiad. I remember reading it in Albanian as I was growing up, but had never read it fully in English (just a few chapters here and there in some classes during my college years).
I just finished reading The Prince and the Pauper. While I remember having read it in Albanian when I was a kid, I still enjoyed reading it in English not only for its sense of humor but also for the childhood memories it brought along.
Had the pleasure of rereading The Prince this weekend.
I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice.
Just had the pleasure of finishing The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I had read the book in Albanian while growing up, but I am glad I decided to read it again in English.
Another reading is finished.
I just finished reading My Name is Red.
Three weeks ago, I had the chance to visit the American Writers Museum in Chicago. Among the many eminent writers who were featured, I noticed Saul Bellow. Intrigued by his lifestyle and the praise he was receiving, I decided to read one of his works. I just finished reading The Adventures of Augie March and it surely did not disappoint.
I finished reading Adolphe by Benjamin Constant.
