I love fiction. Fantasy, romance, historical. It takes me away from all the things weighing me down and depressing me. Lets me focus on something good and enjoy the trials and triumphs of the characters I'm following.
Every now and again a books cover catches your eye and you just have to read it. I know this is not how it's supposed to be, don't judge a book by it's cover and all that. Still you know we all do it. It does happen that you see a book and it looks so intriguing that you just have to know what is inside. I myself have found some very good books this way. But I find that there is nothing quite so frustrating as having this happen and then you can't read said book.
I happened upon a cover that caught my eye and I had to know what it was about so I looked it up. Except that it was in German. Ok, no problem, I'll just see if there is an English copy. Nope. Italian, French and German, that's all I could find. I do not speak, let alone read, any of these languages. So here I sit, sad and frustrated by a book beyond my reach. I suppose I shall just have to continue trying to find and English copy. That or resort to learning to read German.
