Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

Tut tut! Come on, Stelle, keep up! :P To be honest, I don't think I will be reading very quickly now, as I'm back to working late and I'm busy this weekend, so you won't be behind for long. I created a thread for our communal read-along by the way, so my Io non ho paura updates will be over there fr...

Re: Italian study group

If you were to start a thread I would be happy to join in, I think it would boost all of our motivation as well to actually complete the book. I know sometimes I find it hard to stay on track. :roll: Good idea! As there are now a few of us reading the book, I have created a thread where we can disc...

Let's read: Io non ho paura by Niccolò Ammaniti

I don't know whether this is the right place for this thread but here goes. Last month, Stelle and I agreed to read Io non ho paura by Niccolò Ammaniti together in July. Since then, several members of the Italian study group have also shown interest in joining us. https://images.gr-assets.com/books...

Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

Another Io non ho paura reading update I have just reached page 48 and finished the first chapter of this brilliant book. I don't really know what to say without writing about what happens and spoiling the book for anyone who still wants to read it. Let's just say that the mystery that was introduc...

Re: Italian study group

Oh it's never too late to join us, so don't worry about that. It's great to have some more interest actually. :) I'm still on page 30, with a plan to read quite a bit today.

Nathan, do you have an ebook reader? Perhaps that would be the easiest way for you to get the book?

Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

Sadly my copy of this book was apparently sent from Mars, becuase it has not yet arriived. So I am sad and envious... However will i be able to catch up? Hey Eva, thanks for popping by! Aww no, I hope your book gets to you soon. Don't worry though, I'm sure you'll be able to catch up. As I say, the...

Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

Io non ho paura - Day 3 11 pages and another 47 entries in my vocab book later (there were a lot of words relating to construction etc :| ) and I have reached page 30. So (and I'm talking to you here, Stelle!) stop reading here if you want to avoid spoilers up to that point. Agreed! I'm on page 20,...

Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

While I have decided to copy Stelle's idea and write about my first day(s) reading Io non ho paura , I'm not going to calculate my reading comprehension or reading speed as that would take too much effort. :P Between last night and tonight, I have read 13ish pages of the book/up until the bottom of ...

Re: Italian study group

I was inspired by your post and have a copy en route even as I type. Since I am not of the actively commenting sort, I anticipate reading along in my own silence -- but will enjoy it ;-) thanks for the inspiration. I'm really glad to hear that, Eva! Although you don't want to discuss the book while...

Re: Stirring up 2017 with Spoon [ Español | Italiano | Esperanto | Deutsch? ]

I'm starting Io non ho paura NOW! Let me know what you think of El fin de Los sueños. It has its flaws (as do most books), but I really enjoyed it. Well I was going to play some Crash Bandicoot this evening, but knowing that you have already started reading has made me want to start too. :P My plan...
