    Hi, I found your sight through the blogger hop and I really like it, I am now following you on my blog roll. I don’t real as much world fiction as I would like to, but I love books translated from Spanish to English, Allende, Bolano, Marquez… so wonderful. I had a look at this one because I am from Australia and I really loved this book
