Treasures of silence by Javier Burieza Sánchez. This book was a guide of the Covent of the Concepción del Cermen. It was interesting, but I wish i had had more information about the daily life of the nuns-

Elmore Leonard's 10 rules of writing by Elmore Leonard. Very quick read about writing. It was funny and interesting.

859230 












Those things by Julien Neel. I really enjoyed this story about Julien Neel's life. It was nice and heartbreaking at the same time.

So, I hope you are enjoying this read-a-thon so far.

Library Lovers Tag! :)

Hey guys!!! :)

How is it going???? 

Today I decided to make a tag. I don't usually make them because they are long, but this one is quite short. I hope you like it and the questions are at the bottom of this page, so if you want to answer them in the comments below, that would be cool! :)






Questions:

1. How often do you visit you local library?
2. Are you the type of person who checks out more books than you know you can read or are you someone who only checks out the exact amount of books you intend on reading before they are due?
3. How old were you when you got your first library card?
4.Do you go to your library looking for a particular book or do you check out anything that peaks your interest?
5.Do you use your library to check out just books or do you also check out dvds, audiobooks etc.?
6.From what section of your library do you check out a majority of your books? ( YA, middle grade, adult, nonfiction.)
7.What is your favorite part of using your local library?

Sunday in bed... With two books :)

  hosted by: Midnight Book Girl
 

 Hey guys!!! :)

Today I want to share with you the books what I'll be reading today:




- Louis Braille's life and work by Pierre Henri. This one is about Louis Braille. The whole of my life I had always wanted to know more about Braille's alphabet and his life and now I have the opportunity.

- Poetry by Antonio Machado. This book has all the poetry Antonio Machado has written (I think) and I am quite amazed that some poems are really good :)


I have to say that I like this two books, but I don't love them as much as I expected. I hope to finish these ones soon. We'll see.

So, this is me, but what about you? What are you reading today?
