More Books, More Cats

There I was, taking care of some boring administrative stuff, and then visiting some bookstores. The plan was to finish the boring stuff, then buy one book in one bookstore, and one book in another store.

Boring stuff was made better by a family of kitties I’ve seen at Skadarlija (a vintage street in Belgrade). You can see one on the photo above, and here is another:

This tiny kitten sure demands attention

And here is their mother:

The street is full of restaurants, and the little ones are sunbathing in one of them. Just a coincidence, I’m certain.

You can see the entire series of the feline family photos here.

And the books? Well, of course I didn’t buy just two of them. The owners are promoting one of the bookstores I’ve visited, and some of their books are on sale; you can get five of them for less than $2 per book.

And so, I got back home with seven new books.

The titles on the picture are in Serbian, of course, but only one of them, Kada kažeš da sam tvoj by Goran Skrobonja, is a Serbian book (a nostalgic rock’n’roll novel set in Belgrade in the eighties). The others are: The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante (the second book in The Neapolitan Novels tetralogy), If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things by Jon McGregor, Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned by Wells Tower, La Fascination du pire (The Fascination of Evil) by Florian Zeller, The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, and NW by Zadie Smith.

See something you like, something you’ve read and loved, or something you’d like me to write about once I read it?

    1. Yes, they do. They live in a nearby yard, but all those restaurants (and, I guess, all the guests who find them cute) are definitely welcome.

      So many books, so little time… 🙂
