happy book

I just finished reading a collection of essays called Grammar Lessons: Translating a life in Spain by Michele Morano.

The first essay, Ca Beleño, describes the author's time in a Spanish class in Oviedo. Wow, I don't think I could have randomly picked a better book off the library shelves. Reading that essay was like reading the last year of my life.

And I never thought an essay on the subjunctive would captivate me! A great read, especially for those of you who have lived in Spain or taught English.
