My other hobby

I know you are curious about the 'light exercise' we did to walk off the lovely lunch we had at 'Kokoon's' in Leuven on April 11th. As I'm temporarily indulging in another hobby of mine, which I've neglected for much too long - reading - I will just give you a hint or two. 


I guess it's pretty obvious and I promise you I will give you a detailed description of our ordeal in my next post. Btw, this is not the cover of the novel which I'm currently reading ...


... and which is keeping me from writing a long post.


I'm using this Sony reader to enjoy the e-book version of the novel. The 'reader' is brilliant and downloading the e-book was simple and ... what's even better ... it only cost 3.99 euro. A very good deal for 430 pages of suspense and extremely good writing. The novel was recently turned into a film. Any idea what the title is. An extra hint: the author is Australian. 

And for some odd and purely coincidental reason there is also a link between the place my friends and I visited and the the book I'm reading ... There, I think I've said enough to get your little grey cells working ...

The building looks like City Hall in The Place., in the middle photo. I'm clueless on what you're reading but I'll have to wait and find out.

I don't know either but I read a terrific book by Rohinton Mistry "a fine balance". It takes place in India. I've since read 2 more of his books. Very good writer.

My little gray cells must have turned black, because I have no idea. Now I can't wait to find out.

Martine, somehow I became Anonymous without even trying.

Bob, It looks like the City hall of Brussels, but it isn't. As for the book ... no, it's not Harry Potter, but thank you for taking a guess :)

Nadege, My book story is set in Germany. But I'll sure keep that title in mind. Always fan of some reading. Thanks for the tip.

Chm, Thank you for the link. I'll certainly check it out.
Hope you had a good flight despite all the delay and that you are now safely in France, settling in.

Carolyn, You could never be anonymous ... Thank you for your regular comments. I really appreciate and enjoy them.
