This just in on Facebook wall from my awesomely brilliant and snarky friend at Hot Mess, More or Less. I plan on doing The freakin' Carlton when I get there! Read the article here:
Spain begins search for remains of Don Quixote author, Miguel de Cervantes #migueldecervantes #donquixote #hotmess
My friend The Hot Mess recently brought my attention to this (she always finds the best shit. I guess it's from all that extra time she has on her hands NEGLECTING HER BLOGS! Whatever.. benefits me!) Book-A-Minute Classics Some of my favorites:Don Quixote by CervantesDon Quixote:Chivalry demands I destroy that evil thing. Sancho Panza:
No, master. It is something ordinary and harmless. Don Quixote:

Why does Don Quixote keep coming back to haunt me? I'm just sitting here, minding my own business and reading The Art of Eating by MFK Fisher... and she just has to mention that loon while I'm reading about lovely things like baked apples and rice pudding! I'm never going to escape him... Not fully. It's my lot in life. #donquixote #migueldecervantes #theartofeating #mfkfisher
With Don Quixote, Rocinante, Sancho Panza and Dapple in my rearview mirror... it's onwards and upwards for this Bear and her trusty side-kick, Penny Lane.

Sitting outside on this gorgeous day... Drinking coffee and reading Don Quixote. It's my goal to finish it this weekend... I need to move on.
What are the rest of you doing on this beautiful Saturday? #donquixote #migueldecervantes #fun
It's gorgeous outside, so I decided to get away from the distractions (read: reruns of Gilmore girls and Supernatural), sit outside with Aldeux and try to plow through more of Cervantes' way to hurt me.
If you have some free time today, I highly recommend grabbing a book and spending some time in the sun! #donquixote #migueldecervantes
“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.” -Miguel Cervantes Don Quixote So, as I've said in the past, I'm having a hard time finishing Don Quixote. It's a combination of lack of concentration and vacation brain. Well, I've been back from vacation for 2 weeks now... you'd think my brain would be out of "I do what I want!" mode. But no such luck. Husband has been hounding my ass to finish Don Quixote...
