I've just realized since I become a PhD student I've been reading only pdfs: articles, etc. 2 months ago, when I come back from my research stay in Amsterdam, I decided to read novels again, and I’m really happy about it. I finished these 15 books and most of them are from the public and university library of Granada. The best ones for me: Deaf Sentence [La vida en sordina] and The British Museum is Falling Down [La caída del museo británico], by David Lodge.

@peterlibrarian The best novel by far that I read this year was The Dispossessed by Ursula Le Guin. If you've never read it, definitely get on that.

@peterlibrarian I love this. I'm reading some dark fantasy right now. It is such a good break.

@Cyborgneticz @peterlibrarian I love this too! Taking the time to read for pleasure is a form of self-care, and very necessary. Thanks for the recommendations.
