AND THE WINNER IS...

Sara, who recommended reading Jose Saramago, without even knowing I'd just been to Portugal! Saramago's name has cropped up a few times in the past few months, so that's where I'm headed first.

But it's a shame I only have one book to give away because I'm sure I'll take up many of your recommendations, thank you so much for sharing them. And it's interesting to note how many of us have read the same books - must be on the same wavelength yes?

Oh then if Portugal is on the bill...by all means please read something by Fernando Pessoa!!!

I really enjoyed reading everyones recommendations, sometimes i can get in a book rut, so i've had a nice book buying spree.

It was such a good idea.

Nancy - I must admit I've had The Book of Disquiet for a couple of years and never got past about page 30! Now that I've been to Lisbon and perhaps understand the reason for such meandering melancholy, I may give it another try but! (and your recommendation of Barthes is totally up there, I will read it. Like I said, I wish I had a pile of books to giveaway.

Yolande - that's really nice to hear!
