What are you reading?

I don't know if there is a thread about this

What have you recently read?
What are you reading? So far do you like the book?


This is just a thread to share reading experiences.

I hope I'm not repeating another thread.

------------------------------------------------

To begin with, last week I've finished:
"Death in the clouds" and "The Thirteen Problems", both by Agatha Christie.

Today I've finished "Reginald" by Saki.

And now I'm about to start with "Notes from Underground" (Memorias del subsuelo) by Dostoyevski.

And you?

Although I generally have more confidence in original works than in translations, as a Christian who is already familiar with the English version of the Bible I learn a tremendous amount from reading the various Spanish translations of it. And by the same token I've recommended the same practice for Spanish-speaking believers who are learning English.

I found it really challenging to find good basic Spanish level books. I ended up reading teenage novels like Harry Potter and Twilight translated to Spanish. The first one I read was bilingual so when I finished a section I could go back and re-read the English which helps.

I bought books of children's stories in Spanish when I first started out, but found them too difficult.

Perhaps La Casa en Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros would be a good starter? She's bilingual so her Spanish version isn't a translation.

Hace pocos días acabé El tiempo entre costuras de María Dueñas. Lo saqué de nuestra biblioteca digital. Busco otro libro en español. ¿Sugerencias?

Estoy de acuerdo con este método de leer. Leí "El Hobbit" para empezar aprender y desde entonces he leído varios libros traducidos.

Lo interestante es que hispanohablantes a que conozco que hablan inglés prefieran leer en inglés. No les gustan las oraciones sin fin que se escriben es castellano. Prefieren las oraciones cortas de inglés.

De todos modos, en este momento, no tengo un libro. Pero leí que se le puede ayudar memorizar poemas cuando está aprendiendo español (o cualquier idioma). Tal vez vaya a leer Pablo Neruda...
