Down Time

Right now I’m taking a break, have been reading a lot.

In the coming week I will post some of my progress.

For now back to reading, eating and taking things slowly.

Carlos Fuentes and the 2,000 pages

Yesterday morning I finished reading one of the master pieces of latin american literature, La Región más Transparente by the now late mexican writter Carlos Fuentes.

It’s a sweeping chronicle of the post-revolutionary situation of one of the largest cities in the world, Mexico City.

Fuentes reconstructs this fractured city through the lives and memories of the different characters that inhabits it’s caotic street.

From a humble taxi driver to a influential lawyer Fuentes manages to capture the different layers of mexican society in a beautifully poetical and haunting way.

This has been one of the best books I have read in a long while.

The other news is that I have reach 2,000 pages on this fifth year of Lost in a million pages.

 

So that’s 2,248 pages down, 47,494 pages to go.

Total Pages 113,828 pages

Book Shelfs, Part One

The not so great part of moving is that you have to pack, in our case for the most part the boxes sitting around are fill with books, which is awesome but kind of a pain in the ass when is time to organize them.

The challenge is that back in the old apartment we had a custom made bookshelf on the wall of the living room that housed most of the books.

So what to do here.
