2015 Books Read

This is another wonderful reading year. Picking up from 2014, I have enjoyed:

1.Fortunata y Jacinta, by Galdós. Such a title. I was transported to Madrid in the 19th century, and I had the pleasure to meet people that will always live with me. I cannot wait to discuss it with two of my best friends (yes, I have two possible friends who may read it). There is much about the characters and happenings I’d love to discuss with ANY who has read this book.

2. The Wonderful O, by James Thurber. We all adored this title. We have since ordered more books by the same author.

3. Anne of Green Gables. Wow. And to think I had missed this title until now!

4. La Odisea. (The Odyssey). Another title that has climbed very high in my all time favorite books list.

5. Wind in the Willows. This is my second time reading this book, which I adore.

6. Through the Language Glass. Very enjoyable, specially for language lovers and amateurs.
