"Por eso vine a tomar café"

I can’t say I’m a book worm; actually, I’m very far away from that, but I really enjoy reading good books. If I remember well, since I was a kid I like to read short stories, now I like to read novels too.

The last book I have read is “La tregua” by Mario Benedetti. I consider it one of the best books I have read, and I usually read it, because I love it, I can spend two or three afternoons reading until I finish it, but the first time I read it, it took me some days or weeks (I don’t remember well) before I could I finish it. “La tregua” is about an Uruguayan man, who has been a widower for twenty years, and now he has found a new love, a girl twenty five years younger than him. I can’t tell you more about how it goes, because I don’t want to spoil the surprise.

I think everybody should read this book, so I absolutely recommend it to you. I also recommend other Mario Benedetti’s books, such as “Gracias por el fuego”, and Mario Benedetti’s poems too.


  1. Mario Benedetti’s poems are beautiful. I like 'la tregua' too.


    1. I have this book in my house, this winter holydays I'll start to read it!
