First of all the teaser of the week :

(...) She watched his eyes on the road and a strange thought came to her – that for the first time in her life she’d done something as a partnership. An ugly, perverse, unthinkable thing, but it had been done by equals. (...)

First of all the teaser of the week :

"Oh my gosh, I bought the cutest Indian beaded bag at the gift shop in the Best Western outside Sedona."
"I'm not that kind of Indian," Shanti said, her practised smile never leaving her face, though it faltered just a bit, and in that slight wobble was something hard and angry, something that looked like centuries of colonial oppression boiling up into an I'm-going-to-kick-your-ass-in-this-pageant-and-then-take-over-all-your-beauty-out-sourcing-needs hatred.

Reading Challenge 2013 {Part 4}



I stumbled upon the Books in a Series Reading Challenge hosted by BookStacksOnDeck while surfing, and since I have been reading almost nothing but series this year, I thought I could squeeze in an extra challenge.

Wishlist Wednesday #1

Thanks to Ula from Blog of Erised, I discovered the weekly blog hop meme "Wishlist Wednesday" hosted by Pen to paper and as I have over 100 books on my wishlist, I'll have plenty of material to fill this weekly column :o)

Reading Challenge 2013 {Part 3}


As they say in Dutch "Driemaal is scheepsrecht", and therefore I couldn't stick to just two challenges this year. I looked around the interwebs and found several other challenges that sounded tempting (like paranormal fiction challenges etc) but I was looking for one that would push me out of my comfort zone.  It's not really a challenge if you don't have to make any effort, is it? :o)

Reading Challenges 2013 {Part 2}



Still searching for a few other challenges to join, I came across an A to Z challenge (hosted by Babies, Books and Beyond) that seemed particularly appealing.   The goal is simple : read 26 books during 2013, one per letter of the alphabet.

Reading Challenges 2013 {Part 1}

After joining challenges in the kitchen area, I thought it might be a good idea to do the same for the books I read in order to keep me focused and motivated (as I am easily sidetracked into all other kinds of fun activities - like the aforementioned cooking and baking challenges - to the detriment of my ever growing TBR stack).

Welcome

Welcome to yet another book blog on the www.  :o)

Le chat de bibliothèque is the place were I will be writing about the different (e-)books I have read and plan on reading in the coming months.  So feel free to browse my shelves, grab a seat and spend some time with me in the wonderful world of the written word.
