  3. Help, Dorte! I want to change the posted URL #81, natasha to the "natalie" one. Natasha, using Hobbes the lion is not appropriate for the Reading Challenge. I created a new one using another URL and that is the one I would like to use. Can you delete "81"? My new one is http://castlepinesnorth.com Thank you.

  9. 'One Hundred Years of Solitiude'
    By:Gabriel Garcia Marquez

    “Allow yourself to be immersed into a timeless and seemless story of magical realism. At first when reading this story (within the first 50 pages), I was disappointed because I was reading it in the literal sense. Then I started to read this book as if I was reading a Tim Burton film (i.e. Big Fish) and a whole literary experience was opened.

    It's not a complete story in fantasy, but there are superstitions that are linked to the family that appear magical of which I found relevant to move the story.

  10. A book of poetry from the writer of 2666, the same themes & obsessions, but in a form favoured by the writer.

  12. The Silence of the Rain by Luiz Garcia-Roza. A very evocative first novel set in Rio. A mystery with a surprise ending, however, the reader knows what actually happens in the first chapter.
