I guess reading for fun is going to have to take a break for now, because I have to finish El Otro Arbol de Guernica (The Other Tree at Guernica) by Luis de Castresana by next week. I am excited to read this book. The class is the Aesthetic Expressions of the Spanish Civil War and Exile and this particular books deals with north Spanish children who were sent to other countries after the bombing of Guernica by the Nazis (at the approval of the dictator of Spain, Franco). Hopefully I can get a review of Animal Dreams up soon, so you have some actual book reviews to read. I might post a review of Arbol, but it doesn’t look like there’s an English translation out there.
I’m watching the movie version of Sense and Sensibility and it is very silly. I love Hugh Laurie’s role. Every single word he’s said has made me laugh.
I’m going to be picking a winner for the giveaway soon, so keep checking back!
