The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Last year I had some spare reading time from other challengers and remembered this one. So I made a new goal to finish and be done with it (so I wouldn't have to write about my reading habits in art site).

This is continuation from few years ago.
For more updates on my reads, please find me on GoodReads (username is the same as here on DeviantArt).

[x] A classic romance: "The Man" by Bram Stoker
[x] A Sci-Fi novel: "Maro diena" by Andrius Tapinas
[x] A book a friend recommended: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" by J. K. Rowling
[x] A book you were supposed to read in school but didn't: "The Song of Roland"
[x] A book with antonyms in the title: "Juoda moteris, balta šalis" by Waris Dirie
[x] A book with bad reviews: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" by J. K. Rowling
[x] A book from your childhood: "Kliudžiau" by Jonas Biliūnas
[x] A book set in high school: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" by J. K. Rowling
[x] A book by an author from Africa: "Out of Africa" by Karen Blixen
[x] A book about indigenous culture: "The Whale Rider" by Witi Ihimaera
[x] A book written by an author with your same initials: "The Orphan Master's Son" by Adam Johnson
[x] A play: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" by J. K. Rowling
[x] A book you started but never finished: "Jaunojo verterio kančios" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Translation of Lithuanian titles:
"Kliudžiau" by Jonas Biliūnas - the title is a past tense first person verb, which could be most accurately translated as "hit" (as in hitting someone with a weapon, but not yet killing).
"Maro diena" by Andrius Tapinas - "The Day of the Plague".
"Juoda moteris, balta šalis" by Waris Dirie - actual title of the book is "Desert Dawn", but Lithuanian title means "Black Woman, White Country".
"Jaunojo verterio kančios" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - original German title "Die Leiden des jungen Werthers", English title "The Sorrows of Young Werther".
