Yeah. Some Spaniards say it sounds wrong, others say it sounds perfectly normal. To err on the side of caution, I'll approach it the same way as I would in English xD

A few of us have joined this challenge already. I am curious if others are interested from the Spanish Group? I am in and think it will be fun. Posting a link here in case others might miss it, but still would have wanted to start 1/1 had they known. I have at least one stated audio resolution that dovetails quite well with the challenge and will benefit from the focus on consistency.

Does anyone have any recommendations for books to read in Spanish, whether translations or originals?

I have access to Audible, so audio book recommendations are fine. But I'm looking for text recommendations as well.

I like self-help books (but ones which lean towards actually helping you), books on theory or thinking, and books in the supernatural or slice-of-life genre, among others.

Harry Potter's just not working for me.

Try Isabel Allende's Trilogy Memorias del Águila y del Jaguar. I found them to be a great read and not very difficult as it's aimed at kids and teenagers, but also stimulating enough to keep you engaged and reading. Written by a native in the language, and the stories are page turners and really fun. And at around 850 pages that's a whole lot of Spanish to absorb and enjoy. And also whereas Harry Potter's main atmosphere is one of magic, these novels, and particularly the first one, have more of a spiritual, environmental, and cultural touch and emphasis to them, which I really liked.

All the best this year Eido!
