… well… hey there! It’ s sure been a while and I have few excuses. Except, work was busier than ever and the blogging mojo, alas, it was gone. All I was capable of when I got home in the evenings was dropping into an armchair and turning on the TV.
Then Mr Liburuak and I went on holiday to Bilbao for a week, stuffed ourselves with Pintxos and other delicious Basque food, spent time with family and friends and even went to the beach. Now I’m back and apparently, so is the blogging mojo.
In bookish news, while the blogging mojo was gone, the reading mojo stayed on. Books finished:
- Delirio by Laura Restrepo
- El hombre que amaba a los perros by Leonardo Padura
- In One Person by John Irving
- Bartleby y compañía by Enrique Vila-Matas
I will definitely review El hombre que amaba a los perros and In One Person soon, but first a review of Bartleby y compañía is coming up this weekend for Stu of Winstonsdad’s Blog and Richard of Caravana de Recuerdos‘s Spanish Lit Month. This weekend it’s Bartlebymania and I’m joining in.
On another note, I’m now looking for a new flat as my rental contract is running out. Flat hunting in Hamburg is hell. If anyone knows anything about a two or three-bedroom place becoming available, I’d be eternally grateful if you could drop me a line.

I’m glad you are feeling refreshed after your break. And I hope you find an apartment soon!

Thanks, Iris! It’s good to be back 🙂

Welcome back! I’m looking forward to the Irving review.
(Note to self: drat! I missed the Spanish Lit Month and it’s now too late!)

It’s never too late for Spanish Lit Month, Scribacchina! Just have your own private one. I do it all the time… hehe
