For me, one of the most attractive aspects of the #boxwallabook box, is not knowing much about the authors or books included. I‘m introduced to authors & books I may not stumble upon here on Litsy or in a bookstore, etc. They move me, push me as a reader, explore themes & ideas that are heartbreaking, & beautiful & always leave me wanting more. Also, I love how each book takes me on a worldwide adventure - somewhere exotic, foreign & romantic.

Almost everybody in the world goes blind except they see white.

When you ask me what my favorite book is, the answer is always either Blindness or The Road, depending on which one I‘ve most recently reread. As usual, this book was a wonderful experience. As soon as this readathon is done, I plan on reading the sequel “Seeing”.

I‘m participating in the Tome Infinity and Beyond readathon that started today, mostly because it gave me a fun reason to reread Blindness. I freaking adore this book. This reread is just as good as every other one.

This "oldest of the pessimistic philosophers" sounds *nothing* like Baudrillard, Saramago you hack ?????

How appropriate that I started reading this book on September 11th… (which since this book was first published in 2005, I kind of assume the resemblance was intentional.)

(Also TIL that the flagpole outside my office building was literally erected after/for 9/11, so yeah.)

So first I learned that Spain Rodriguez was not actually Latino, because his dad was a Spaniard, but whatever, still Hispanic, that's fine. Now I'm finding out that José Saramago was not Brazilian, but just plain old Portuguese. And MY Portuguese-heritaged ass knows all too well that we are not considered either Hispanic OR Latinx (oh well, I'm still reading his book during #LatinxAuthors month 😝)
