Hi everyone!!!
 
I hope you're having a great day :)
 
Today I'm going to spend the evening with these two books:  
 
 
15791279 23664010


15791279 
 
This is Warhol by Catherine Ingram. This book is a Warhol's biography. I really like it because I'm learning things about Walhol and the Factory which I didn't know. Also it has pictures and photographs :)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
23664010 
 
 
Por el gusto de leer(For the pleasure of reading) by Juan Cruz. This book is basically an interview that Juan Cruz did to the publisher Beatriz de Moura. It's really interesting because Beatriz explains how she created the publisher house and the people she met (authors such as Beckett, Kundera, etc.) Really cool book which also contains photographs.

 
 
 
 
These are the books that I'm reading today, feel free to share yours or a blog post or video if you've created one :)

Book Blogger Hop!

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I wanted to do something different and I've found the perfect meme. I hope you like it :)


Book Blogger Hop


                                     hosted by: Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer


This meme consists of aswering a question: 

Why would you stop reading a book? Too long, wrong genre, bad language, not what you expected, or something totally different? 


My answer is: Normally when this happens is because the book is not engaging me enough to keep reading. I need the book gives me something and after 100 pages if I'm not interested in the book, I put it aside.

Do you like this meme? If you liked it and you want to participate, just click here or if you don't want to make a post, you just can share your anwer in the comments :)

Sundays in bed with 3 books+a new family member :)


 SundaysInBedWithBig



                       hosted by: Midnight Book Girl

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I need to relax. I just want to enjoy the day and read some books.

In the afternoon I'm reading:

22385474

Confesiones de una editora poco mentirosa(Confesions of an editor a little liar) by It's a really cool book and I'm enjoying it very much. Esther Tusquets was an editor and she tells in this book her experience. It's so well-told that I can't stop reading it.









In the evening I'm going to try to finish two books:

EN TORNO A MI TRABAJO COMO PINTOR
En torno a mi trabajo como pintor (About my work as a painter) by Antonio López. In this book Antonio talks about how he started his vocation, what he thinks about other painters such as Balthus, Picasso and Matisse, the problems he had with his paintings and how he dealt with them. Really cool book too. I really like Antonio López, he is humble and close to people.

316804 





The little witch by Otfried Preussler. This book is a very fun book to read. I didn't expect that because I remember starting reading it and I didn't like it, but now I'm enjoying it very much. It's about a witch who wants to go to a ball, but she can't because she is too young to go. she goes there anyway, but she is busted and now she has to be a good witch.






New member of the family:

I went to a wedding last weekend and the bride and the groom gave this plant as a present.



  

I hope you have a good day :)

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Authors that I want to meet



                                  hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you the ten authors I want to meet

Helene Hanff. Unfortunately this is impossible because she passed away, but if I could I definitely met this author. She seems to me a funny interesting person.

Paul Auster. Oh, I really love Paul Auster's world or at least I like the one he creates in his books. So, it'd be great to have the opportunity to meet him and he shared with me how he creates them.

Neil Gaiman. I would like to meet Neil Gaiman. He writes soooo well. It's always a pleasure to read him.

Ana Oncina. She is the creator of one of my favourite comic: Croquette and Small Pasty. These charactes are very charming and funny. I can't wait she publishes more ^^

Brian Selznic. I really like this author because he combines drawing with words. I have seen some interviews and he speaks in a very interesting way that it would be great to meet him.

Ann Brashares. I really enjoyed her series The travelling pants that I want to meet the author behind that. I think she is very interesting.

Louse Rennison. As Ann Brashares, i think Louise Renison knows how teenagers talk and start relationships. I want to kno how she does that :)

Shannon Hale. I like this author because she writes different things and she is not stick to a gender. It would be interesting to meet her and know more about how she can do that.

Alex Finn. I have only read Beastly by this author and it was AMAZING. I really want to meet her and see how she can change a fairy tale just as she did.

Carmen Martín Gaite. Another one that is impossible to meet because she died, but Iit would be great if I could meet her anyway.
