Hoy vengo un poco más tarde a contaros lo que estoy leyendo esta semana. Ayer empecé a buscar algo facilito para leer en inglés, que ya es hora de que me ponga con el reto si no quiero que me pille el toro, y me topé con un libro del que no había oído hablar nunca pero que me atrajo bastante, Understood Betsy, de Dorothy Canfield. Por lo que leí en los comentarios de Goodreads es de esos libros infantiles que disfrutas tanto o más de adulto.
¿Os suena? ¿Lo habéis leído? Aquí os dejo los primero párrafos para ver si os llama la atención:
When this story begins, Elizabeth Ann, who is the heroine of it, was a little girl of nine, who lived with her Great-aunt Harriet in a medium-sized city in a medium-sized State in the middle of this country; and that's all you need to know about the place, for it's not the important thing in the story; and anyhow you know all about it because it was probably very much like the place you live in yourself.
Elizabeth Ann's Great-aunt Harriet was a widow who was not very rich or very poor, and she had one daughter, Frances, who gave piano lessons to little girls. They kept a "girl" whose name was Grace and who had asthma dreadfully and wasn't very much of a "girl" at all, being nearer fifty than forty. Aunt Harriet, who was very tender-hearted, kept her chiefly because she couldn't get any other place on account of her coughing so you could hear her all over the house.
