Now I'm reading "A Good Yarn" by Debbie Macomber, which is the story about the woman opend a new yarn shop and knitting class then three women joined the knitting class. I have already read the former book "The Shop on Blossom Street" which was written before "A Good Yarn".
At first I wasn't interested in these books but "The New York Times bestselling author" or comments to these books on web made me purchased.
I want to read these novels, especially women.

The last two books I read are L'església del Mar by Ildefonso Falcones and Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. Right now I'm reading Gabriel Garcia Márquez's Cien Años de Soledad. I started reading it because of the good critics I have always heard about it, but the truth is I'm really bored with the book. Has anyone here read it?

I have. I can't remember wether it was boring or not for me... but I definitely remember the book - that means the book really worth reading. It's just classics you can't evade...

That's one of the main reasons why I am reading the book, it's a classic. I am aware of my "cultural void" and I want to fix it. I do like the book, but sometimes it's a little... blah! But one thing I am sure of is that I want to finish it.
