I must admit that on Friday I was given three books as a Valentines present! I am quite happy! One was a Spanish dictionary, one a grammar workbook and the other was a novel.
'The Dante Club' by Matthew Pearl. This book has some rave reviews. It is based in Boston 1865 where a small group of elite minds have gathered to make the first American translation of Dante. Then they discover a serial murderer has got there first and they find they are turned into detectives. I am fascinated and I've only read 3 pages!
