Hello "Admin"
You have done a great job! Congratulations.
I bought "Las peliculas" (book suggested to read in this froum) in a recent trip to Caracas. I'm reading... anybody else?

I am reading Las Peliculas too.  Thoroughly enjoying the familiar Chile/California connections and the choice of movies so far.

I have Peliculas too and am slowly reading...about a third of the way through.  Excellent suggestion ! I'm enjoying it so far...and somehow I ordered two copies, so I sent one to someone I know in Nicaragua who has been wanting some new books to read...

could this be a blog by the same author ? http://laspeliculasdemivida.blogspot.com/ and I think Sergio that if you may wish to find an edition printed by "Alfaguara" http://loslibrosrobados.blogspot.com/2006/09/las-pelculas-de-mi-vida-de-alberto.html because I think "Rayo" is the north american publisher ?

and I also found a copy of a new book entitled "words without borders" and it has short stories from all over the world, including some never before translated into English with work from Spain, Mexico and other latin american countries.  I'll be back to list some of the authors soon, if you like.

No time for reading right now.  Over halfway thru - but lots of family commitment right now.
End of school year - total madness.
Nonetheless, let's not let the momentum fade.
