Right now I'm in Mexico so I wasn't going to allow myself to spend my free time reading but I was told by a friend that I just had to read One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez because he's such a fantastic Latin American writer (he is the author of Love in the Time of Cholera; he has won the Nobel Prize for literature). So since she had the book I decided to pick it up. I like it a lot so far.
Nonetheless, when I get back the first book I will be reading is A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce for my online book club, Uptown Litterati. Check us out!
