I listened to this book in two days. Short but very meaningful. He also recommends several book from Harry Potter to political theorists.

2018 was a rollercoaster and I sort of disappeared from social media. I really enjoy Litsy recommendations so I plan to share more of my reads this year. Argentinan author Mariana Enriquez is my first pick for 2019

I really enjoyed this book. It addresses war and loss but with a very special voice. It was also very immersive. I almost miss my bus stop a couple of times

I have been gone from Litsy due to many life changes. But I am finally getting a routine down and making time to read during my commute. This book will help me fulfill my science fiction and book with a D challenge.

Vegetarian lunch with some Anne of Avonlea on the side. I am using Serial app to read classics and I Find very pleasant to read a few pages everyday. I am catching up with some old chapters I haven‘t read.

BookBabe Omg, lunch details please! That looks soooo delicious! 😍 13mo
sofiaga @BookBabe this is a Costa Rican typical lunch. We call it Casado. It always has fresh white rice and fresh cooked beans, some green salad, in this case cabbage, a picadillo (tiny cut, cooked an seasoned veggies), fried plantains and some protein. In my case, they have me ayote (a type of pumpkin soup) and boiled egg cooked with beans. The best part is that it cost about $5 (edited) 13mo

My #Nobelistas Bookclub is reaching its goal of reading one by book by each of the 14 women who had won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Afterwards we are changing our name to #lamitaddelestante (half the bookshelf). We are sticking to reading just works by women and I am curating the book selections. These are our first 5 books, starting with a gorgeous illustrated edition of a A Room‘s of One Own translated into Spanish by Jorge Luis Borges.

I won a free three month French class. I have taken lesson 3 years ago, but stop practicing. Today I discovered that the French Alliance has a free library for students and I am already using it. I love Guy Delisle and I think his graphic novels are great to expand my knowledge of the language.

I am trying to control the amount of books I buy and also read some of the books I have previously bought. I am supposed to buy a new one for every two books read. This was good, but I already owe myself a couple of books read. However, it helps me not get out of control when I go to the bookstore.

Me desperté a las 5:00 a.m. y di vueltas en la cama hasta que decidí empezar a leer este libro que estaba en mi mesa de noche. Amanecí 3 horas después leyendo todavía y admirando la deliciosa inteligencia de Szymborska #litsyinSpanish I woke up at 5:00 a.m and rolled around until I started this book on my nightstand. Here I am, 3 hours later still awake and enjoying the delightful intelligence of the author.
