Read & Listen

I just came home with a bag full of books... and a CD.

If consumerism is a Capital Sin... just wondering if buying culture (music, literature) and buying in a charity... becomes it in Venial Sin?

The Cd is called Eduardo Niebla & Adel Salameh´s Mediterraneo... amazing guitars.

The books are..

- For Whom The Bell Tolls, by Ernest Hemingway... the classic novel based in the Spanish Civil War.
- Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, by Jules of the best science fiction adventure I know.
- Interlunar, by Margaret Atwood... let´s see how is it. Last week I bought her The Blind Assassin but it´s still on the table.
- Greatly Exaggerated, The Wit and Wisdom of Mark Twain, edited by Alex Ayres... expect more than one quote from the great American writer, like...

"A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read"
