Nice work on taking the #5 spot in the 1001 index! Happy New Year and happy reading!
Your welcome! Hope you had a great Christmas. As I said, I would love to hear your thoughts on the books as you read them, if you want my advice, Battleborn is the best of them all. It is one of the best books I have EVER read, enjoy!
Thanks for the books, Santa! Looks like I've got a few tomes waiting for me. I can't wait to read 'em.
HI Simone2!!!
He visto que tenemos algún libro en común, por ello te he añadido como amigo. Creo que puede ser interesante compartir opiniones sobre libros. Seguro que podemos intercambiar recomendaciones muy útiles.

Viendo tus gustos me he tomado la libertad de recomendarte algún libro de Isabel Allende, ya he visto que has leído alguno y supongo que estarás de acuerdo conmigo de que sus libros enganchan desde el principio y son de lectura obligada!!Para empezar puedes leer la Casa de los espíritus y La isla bajo el mar, no te decepcionarán.

Si tienes un ereader puedes descargarte este libro u otros muchos en mi website los libros son baratos, hay mucha variedad y además son de gran calidad!!!Así pretendo hacer la literatura más asequible para todos!!!
Un saludo!!!!!!
Y disfruta de la lectura!!!!!
Hi Simone! I'm still waiting for my Santathing books to arrive, but after looking at your account I see that we have lots of books in common and I can't wait to see what you picked out for me. Happy holidays! Marcy :)
Dear Simone
thank you for your wonderful review of Hunting Sketches!
I received my books today and I can't wait to get started! Thank you again!
So glad you got them. I've still not received anything. :-( I hope you enjoy reading them.
