Book Blogger Hop - 11/30 - 12/6

Question of the Week:

If you could travel back in time to purchase the first printing of a specific novel, what book would that be? (submitted by Billy@ Coffee Addicted Writer)

My Answer: 

I am going to go with SHADOW OF THE WIND by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

It is the first book that always comes to mind when someone asks for a recommendation.


  1. I Agrér with you. One of my absolute favourite books.

    1. That actually is the only book of his that I liked. And I LOVED it.

      Thanks for commenting, Lisbeth.

  2. Nice! I just went with the typical classic! Lol!

  3. I don't collect books so probably wouldn't want to travel back in time to get any of them. Now, there are some other things I'd travel back in time for.

      Thanks for commenting, Nicki.

  5. That is such a great book. I loved it when we read it for book club a few years ago. Hope you have a great weekend. - Katie

    1. My favorite of his and an all-time favorite.

      I only read this and his second book, but nothing was as good for me as SHADOW OF THE WIND. I didn't read any of his others.

      I HAD to go to Barcelona after reading the book to find all of the places mentioned in the book.

      Thanks for commenting, Katie.

  6. OMG!! What a GREAT choice!! I've had this book sitting on my shelves (the Spanish language original version) for quite some time now, and have yet to read it!! I NEED to make sure to read it in the coming year!!
