I feel a great sense of accomplishment having successfully completed the BOOKS ON FRANCE challenge hosted @ Words and Peace. It is always easier for me to read fiction rather than non-fiction and so I am glad that I read not one but two Non-fiction books for this challenge. Frantz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth is a classic of Resistance Studies while Robert Flaceliere’s book A Literary History of Greece is a scholarly study of Greek cultural history.
I also read my first Maigret:
Maigret Loses His Temper by Georges Simenon
So, all in all, I am very happy to have taken part in the challenge and I look forward to taking part in it next year too.
