TED: My year reading a book from every country in the world | Ann Morgan

Enjoyed this talk here, and it reminded me why reading is the best :)

 

 

Then i turned a few pages on the blog, too (https://ayearofreadingtheworld.com) , as i was curious what books she found from Moldova/ Romania –  and no, i have not read any of the ones mentioned. Oh well.

And even if the challenge is over, here goes.

From Moldova /  Romania, the nominees are :

  • Cel mai iubit dintre pământeni / The Most Beloved of Earthlings  –  by Marin Preda  
  • Ion – by Liviu Rebreanu
  • Patul lui Procust / Procrustes’s Bed –  by Camil Petrescu
  • Ultima noapte de dragoste, Prima noapte de razboi  / The Last Night of Love, The First Night of War – by Camil Petrescu
  • Nunta din cer /  Marriage in Heaven-  by Mircea Eliade

P.S and i am currently reading one of the books from the list from Russia, but then again, i was sure it would be on the list : Mikhail Bulgakov The Master and Margarita. Still 50% to go, so given that i am reading it in original, wish me luck :)
