Don Quijote: seleccin de textos | Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

Mehso-so

I finished just as my book expired. The first 600 pages were chivalric adventure tales with enough bodily noises and fluids to keep any junior high boy enthralled. From page 600 on, it seemed like a tally of all the games bored rich people play.

britt_brooke I haven‘t read this book, but I love your review! 1y
Nebklvr @britt_brooke It actually wasn‘t bad just looong. I didn‘t realize how many cultural references stemmed from this book. 1y
britt_brooke @Nebklvr Oh, that‘s interesting enough for me to want to read it .... eventually. 1y

Nebklvr @britt_brooke I have a lot of those. I am trying to read one randomly selected classic off of my shelves per month..... Moby Dick and Don Quijote in the same year.....I am not such a fan of big books 1y
britt_brooke @Nebklvr I like this idea! I try to read a certain number of classics each year and I‘m behind. I‘m impressed you read both of those this year! Big books intimidate me, too, but as you saw, I‘m reading Les Mis now. 😵 It‘s so good though! 1y
Nebklvr @britt_brooke Best of luck! 1y
Blueberry I just saw the musical tonight. 1y
Nebklvr @Blueberry Was it good? 1y
Blueberry Yes, it was 😀 1y
Litsi So undecided about reading this one (edited) 1y
Nebklvr @Litsi It was good for first 600 pages. Culturally interesting. I wasn‘t aware of just how much it has leaked into regular society. Could have used a good edit. Still if the print hadn‘t been microscopic, it would have been an easy enough read. 1y

Hour 12 Challenge: A Whole New World

This book changed my life when I read it in #college as a #Spanish #lit major. It taught me a lot about self-confidence, integrity, dignity, and making your own life in the world. But it‘s also about the harshness of reality and other people‘s power in our lives.

The book means so much to me I named my dog #Sancho, and the only #tattoo I have is of #Picasso‘s Man of La Mancha.

I really like the #serial app, but when I was reading the translation at the bottom, I remembered the better (imo) version above and it might have put me off a little! What to do, what to do.....

#SeasonsReadings2016 Classic I haven't read. There are others, of course. This is one that has me considering the serial app. (So love learning about things like that here on Litsy).

BexCW Oh this is the same book on my list! Need to look up this serial app! 3y

Annl I have that picture framed hanging in my house and Don Quijote is one of my favorite books. I want to read it in English next year. I studied it in Spanish at school! 3y
GlitteryOtters Ahhh, me too!! I feel totally bad that I haven't read it yet. I've managed to get through most of my classics TBR long ago, but I kept forgetting to read this. 3y

I went a little crazy buying books today. Picture of my book pile to come. This is Abraxas Books in Daytona. #bookstore #getindie I blurbed it as Don Quijote because that's one of the books I bought.

Classic Audio I enjoyed this book as it has been parodied, referenced, and quoted so often that it was nice to finally get it. It was not quick but what classics are. I feel better now I understand the whole yelling at windmills thing.

Sancho has been with my parents since May and will be until December while I do all this travel for work. After 11 years together, I miss having him around. But at least I get to visit him for a week!
