Hello, this is my reading story. No pictures today because this was written entirely on my phone. No regrets

AGE 4 ---------- So the first book I remember reading was one called "Ami" I can't remember the plot, the author or even the protagonist's name (Ami was an alien, but the protagonist was a kid) but I surely remember the effect it produced on me; it was the first book ever to generate emotions within me  (And I don't even remember what those emotions were)

AGE 6 ----------- When I turned six, my dad's friend gave me Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as a present (I had previously read HP 3 and 4). From that moment on I became a disgusting Harry Potter fan, taking the books with me everywhere I went

AGE 12 ----------My orange lime tree was lent to me by an aunt and strongly recommended by my mom. It was an excellently written autobiography, told as if it was a tale. But I have to admit that it didn't create in me that feeling of tenderness everyone talked about. I guess it must be because I'm not a father tho.

AGE 13 ---------- One hundred years of solitude; I was told not to read it because it was for adults and I wouldn't understand it. Now THAT is what I call a piece of advice, because it helped me to foster my imagination (and curiosity, obviously) to get this book and understand it
PS: I actually had to read it twice

AGE 14: --------- Attila, the Scourge of God. Thisone was lent to me by a literature teacher, and with this book I learned how fascinating history can be if told in the right way. It is about the story of the leader of the Huns, Attila, and the journey of a young writer who has to face him... and bla bla.

AGE 15--------- With the release of Harry Potter 6 in 2010 I broke my own record by reading 600+ pages in two days (caffeine overdose effects aside)

AGE 16----------- My literature teacher from 2n year took me and the other bunch of savage misfits (my classmates) to a beautiful journey through compulsory literature for secondary school. He inroduced the stories in a way that forced you to read the book because you couldn't handle curiosity. That's how I discovered The Divine Comedy, which generated in me sme kind of love/hate/love because two of the three parts were excellent and the last one was boring as heaven (bad pun, but literally it was very boring)

AGE 19--------- This short story called Body and Soul by John Wyndham was one of the most mindblowing stories I've ever read and I strongly reccomend it to anyone, regardless of their favourite genre

AGE 20--------- There were other books (a lot) which I had to read at the prof; this gave me mixed feelings because they were books which I would have enjoyed if I hadn't been forced to read them: this made me hate and love the book at the same time.

Eg: Dracula, The Hobbit

  4. Wow... I remember Ami!!! (I had not thought of that book for years!!)
    As regards the other books you mention... I love the Harry Potter series and I am reading it with my son (we are finishing book 5) but my favorite of all is the JM de Vasconcelos one... Have you read its sequel "Vamos a calentar el sol"?)

    1. Yes, I think so... Was it the one with the "sapo cururu"? That one I could feel more related to, since I was almost the same age as the protagonist, I liked it more than the first one.
      Ahhhh the memories
