You know I was just talking last night an out Spanish lit month on twitter turned and decide to start Beings a collection of Peruvian short stories I was sent earlier this month .I have a couple of books from Peru on mu blog and one story in this collection is by Cueto who I have reviewed before .Then  if by Chance today in town I was busy shopping and found The invention of morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares second hand which I saw as a sign so I need to chat to richard my cohost and we need choose some books for next month but as you see I have two already do you ever get Book deja vu like finding the Casares today and seeing it as a sign of where to go in you reading ? I for one am a sign reader if I hear something see something and connect to a book I tend to read that book next .

    Glad you managed to find a copy of the Casares – I bought it as part of my min-splurge after finishing the #TBR20. Looking forward to Spanish Lit Month – I’m already halfway through All Souls By Javier Marias and enjoying it very much.

    As soon as I saw on Twitter that Spanish Lit Month was happening again I began searching my shelves – I found one or two. I may even try to fit in another Bioy Casares!

    I was so happy to see that you and Richard decided to host this again this year! My reading’s been a bit slow of late, but I definitely plan to join in. I’ve always had good luck with the books I’ve read for Spanish Lit month.

    The Invention of Morel is one of my favorite books in Spanish. Just by coincidence I have a few titles translated from Spanish on my TBR pile right now, so I might join in. Candidates include The Polish Boxer by Eduardo Halfon, and a few Roberto Bolano books. Will see what I can manage…
