My Reading List

A while back my man thought of a reading revolution where I would read books written by authors from different countries – from as far west as Columbia to as far east as Japan. I don’t know why he was the one who thought of it but I were the one who would do it.

Now I feel like it is the time to get back to the project and put it down on paper. So here are what I have read/been reading since early 2014: 1. One Hundred Years of Solitude, Gabriel García Márquez (Columbia, language of the original copy: Portuguese) 2. The Goldfinch, Donna Tartte (USA, language of the original copy: English) 3. The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho (Brazil, language of the original copy: Portuguese) 4. The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden, Jonas Jonasson (Sweden, language of the original copy: Swedish) 5. Norwegian Wood,Haruki Murakami (Japan, language of the original copy: Japanese) And these are some in the queue: The Diary of A Young Girl, Anne Frank (Netherlands, language of original copy: Dutch) – I just got the original copy on ebook because I hope one day I will be able to read this title in Dutch The Girl on the Fridge, Etgar Keret (Israel, language of the original copy: Hebrew) Down the Rabbit Hole, Juan Pablo Villalobos (Mexico, language of original copy: Spanish) The Colour of Magic (Discworld, #1), Terry Pratchett (England, language of the original copy: English) How to Fall in Love, Cecelia Ahern (Ireland, originallylanguage of the original copy: English) …
