I may have to give Little Mother of Russia a go when I have some time on my hands. I am so back logged right now ...

I've finished "Footprints In The Snow: Tales of Haunted Russia" by James L. Choron, I found it very interesting and compelling.

Yes, they're true ghost stories set in Russia, mainly small villages. The author is an American who went to work in Russia in the 80s, and fell in love with it.

Now that my book reviews are finally done, I'm back to reading Lion Feuchtwanger's Raquel, The Jewess of Toledo. Hope to do a review on my blog once it's finished.

Just finished reading some material for a competition I was asked to judge. Now back to The Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig - not sure what I think about it at the moment but I'm still reading it. Just about half way.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
