One of the joys of starting this blog has been sharing the beauty of the Amalfi Coast with so many people around the world. This place has a way of enchanting people and creating a strong and lasting pull. I know it has for me! Over the past few months I have met people from all over the United States and Europe who have either been to the Amalfi Coast or who are dreaming of coming some day. It is wonderful to hear from all of you! Grazie mille for your wonderful comments!
Karen over at South of Rome just discovered another beauty of the Amalfi Coast, which I have to share with you all here. Head over and read her wonderful post from yesterday called The Beauty of Amalfi, an Italian Tale. She includes a link where you can go and read a book online called The Beauty of Amalfi, An Italian Tale, which was published in 1852 in London. I just downloaded the book for free (I love you Google!), and I can’t wait to get started! I plan on enjoying it just as Karen suggested, with a nice glass of wine and a comfortable reading spot. Many thanks, Karen, for sharing this wonderful book!
This is the first post in what will be a semi-regular feature called Weekend Reads. I am constantly reading anything I can get my hands on about the Amalfi Coast, Italy, travel writing, and the Italian language, and I look forward to sharing great reads here and hopefully starting a discussion with all of my lovely readers. If you have any book recommendations, please leave a comment or send me an email. Happy reading!
