I like reading a lot. Mostly books on languages, or travel.

Me encanta leer, pero quando empiezo un libro nuevo, no quiero dejarlo, quiero terminarlo muy rápido.

Leo todos los tipos de libros, me gusta más las autobiografías.

Mi autora favorita es una inglesa, que se llama Maeve Binchy, se escribe libros narrativa.

Ayer he terminado un libro de Ross Kemp, que se llama "Gangs" es de un documental,
fue muy interesante. ( what l want to say is, that the book is from a documentary )

Thanks a lot

Hola Deborahj

I have just bought Diccionario Cambridge Compact para estudiantes de inglés - a little on the expensive at 27.50 euros but I think worth it (sorry i know this question was for David !! - hope you don't mind the suggestion)

I thought that it might help me understand words from a Spanish perspective.

I have just finished reading 'The Ghosts of Spain by Graeme Tremlett' and found it fascinating.
I am now reading Cuenta Cuentos Billingúe - tres obras de la literatura infantil. tres clásicos. little red riding hood (Caperucita Roja) beauty and the beast (bella y la bestia) and Puss in boots (el gato con botas). I hope it will help me understand a little more of this wonderful language that I am struggling with !!

Hi Ruby,

Thanks very much for the info, l have a small collins at the moment thats not very extensive, l think a good dictionary is essential for language learning. I will see if l can get the one you suggest sent to me.

Thanks again,
Kind regards
Debbie
