You can say it´s a good idea to read books in spanish in order to catalyze the new language. However, I wouldn´t say it´s very enjoyable. I´ve gone on somewhat of a book spree and went crazy in the store; well stores. This is the new lineup of books I have yet to enjoy. I just finished ´Dead until dark´ which Alex so graciously lent to me. The bus to San Sebastián was a long ride and was begging to be accompanied with a book. I gave in.
The Pillars of the earth was a recommendation from Ross, my mate from England. I´ve never heard of this book prior to him, but the way he explained the importance of reading this book to me; well it was critical. ´Perfume´I talked about in an earlier post. Alex introduced me to the movie and getting the book was no option.
´Pray, Eat, Love´was a book that has been on my mind for a while. I´ve been following some blogs and I came upon one of my favorites and the blogger is in the midst of this book. She was wrapped inside this book and was unable to put it down. I take recommendations like these to the heart.
So I set aside my spanish, games with the kids, and I enjoy a good english book. You should too.
