En mi mesa de noche, lecturas para el 2012 / In my nightstand, readings for 2012


English version is in RED writing!

Durante el 2011 pensé que leer sería un lujo y que me quitaría valioso tiempo de escritura que necesitaba para completar mi novela de fantasía. ¡Qué equivocada estuve! Sin darme cuenta la lectura se hizo, nuevamente, parte de mi diario vivir y no solo eso, me introdujo a otro método de lectura a través de los e-books.

Hay tiempo para todo, y me lo demostré cuando pude completar cinco libros del mismo autor (A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin). Así que este nuevo año decidí que la lectura debe ser parte de mi vida diaria al igual que la escritura y por tal creé una lista de los libros que deseo leer en este primer trimestre del 2012.

Aquí está la lista, que puede crecer, de los cuatro libro-los primeros dos los comencé pero no los he terminado-que he escogido.

During 2011 I thought that reading would be a luxury and it would take away valuable time from writing, needed to complete my fantasy novel. How wrong I was! Before I knew it reading, again, was part of my daily life and not only that, it introduced me to another method of reading through e-books.

There is time for everything, and I showed it to myself when I read five books by the same author (A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin). So this new year I decided that reading should be part of my daily life as well as writing and for that I created a list of books I want to read in the first quarter of 2012.

Here is the list, that might grow, of four books-the first two I started but have not finish yet-that I have chosen.

El vencedor está solo de Paulo Coelho: En ella el autor describe con augurales palabras el mundo de las celebridades en el Festival Internacional de Cannes. Coelho retrata la vida de varios personajes, haciéndolas interactuar en conexión a la fama y el dinero. La ambición, la envidia, el rencor, la codicia y el desenfreno son combinados con el amor, el deseo de superación, el esfuerzo individual y el sacrificio; sentimientos que todos, alguna vez, sentimos. (Resumen sacado de Wikipedia)

Inheritance de Christopher Paulini: Not so very long ago, Eragon—Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider—was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances. The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?

The Hobbit de J.R.R. Tolkien: is the story of Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit who lives in Hobbiton. He enjoys a peaceful and pastoral life but his life is interrupted by a surprise visit by the wizard Gandalf. Before Bilbo is really able to improve upon the situation, Gandalf has invited himself to tea and when he arrives, he comes with a company of dwarves led by Thorin. They are embarking on a journey to recover lost treasure that is guarded by the dragon Smaug, at the Lonely Mountain. Gandalf has decided, much to Bilbo’s chagrin, that the hobbit will make an excellent addition to the team and Bilbo is going to play the role of a burglar. As they start on their way, Bilbo has serious misgivings.

La mansión de los Stevenson de Antonio Lagares: A mediados del siglo XX, los jóvenes buscaban identificarse con movimientos que proclamaran la libertad como único fin. Fue una época marcada por la propagación de todo tipo de drogas entre estudiantes, artistas e intelectuales. Esta obra narra los problemas internos de una familia aristócrata inglesa. Uno de sus miembros intenta desenmascarar una absurda leyenda que pesa sobre el apellido Stevenson. De fondo, nos encontramos con las secuelas que la droga dura, como la heroína, va dejando entre sus adeptos.
