Hi, I really like your blog and your reading choices!

PS: About Jewish lit, have you read "The way to the cats"? It's a marvellous book.

stefania - Thanks! I haven't read it yet, but it is on my TBR list. Have you read it?

Yes, I have read it for a university course on Jewish literature. The plot may sound a bit strange because it is the story of an old Israeli woman who is recovering from a broken hip in a nursing home in Tel Aviv. The story is beautifully-written and it manages to be always interesting even if it is set in a closed environment. I strongly recommend it! It's an open window on life in Israel, but it's not a book focused on religion, if you're looking for that. It's interesting to see how is everyday life in Israel and what part religion plays in people's life, if any.
