The Orbis Terrarum challenge has begun, and I've been travelling around the world already: Cuba, a quick detour to Tennessee, and now Columbia. The Challenge site is a great spot to find books from around the world, based on author's nationality. It's fun to try and fill in a world map with books from other countries. It's like a list!
I am visiting Columbia and learning about the love and life of two very different people, Love in the Time of Cholera. I wish I knew the name already for a book that reminds you of another book because this book reminds me of Les Miserables, and that might not be a compliment, (I never finished Les Mis.) It's the tangents and details of characters that appear for a millisecond that causes me to compare them. Any suggestions? Suey should have a voting post up tomorrow so get your ideas in today.
Where is reading taking you today? Leave a comment, make a post, spread the word.
