So many books, so little time! Below are two of the books I'm enjoying these days.


I could look at this giant-sized children's book for days on end. The illustrations are exquisite. The picture above is of the Spanish version. I bought it at Luz y Vida Bookstore in Burgos, Spain.


The poet Pablo Neruda was a diplomat in Madrid during the 1930s. This book of poetry, both moving and haunting, bears witness to the Spanish Civil War. The picture above is of the bilingual edition. I bought it at Desperate Literature Bookstore in Madrid, Spain.
