Hello and happy Wednesday. Can you believe it’s November already? I honestly can’t, I mean, my birthday is in a few days and I feel like this year has gone by incredibly fast.
Book-wise, it’s been a great month, and not just because of what I’ve read but rather the nice experiences I’ve had regarding books. Let me explain because right now I’m not making too much sense. My father turned 53 in May, and for his birthday, as has been tradition for a few years now, I gave him a book. Only I didn’t just give him a book; I made him a bookish treasure chest (click here to see how I made it).
Inside the book I gave him, I wrote a note that said I’d bought the same book so that we could read at the same time and have sort of a book club. You see, for years my dad had asked me for book recommendations and we talked about what he was reading, which I’d often read already, but it was something informal, something casual.
I read a lot in English, and I only review books in English, but Spanish is my first language and for every four or five books in English I read, I do as well one in Spanish. My tastes are very different in both languages, though I don’t know if that happens to anyone else. With my dad, we only read books in Spanish; he knows English but doesn’t read the books I do in that language.
So far we’ve read two books since we decided to establish our club, but it’s something we share and I love that we have that for ourselves. Do you have a book club? Official or not? Tell me in the comments below!
Love, Miss Camila
