bookshelves: ophelia-s-library, favourites
Read from January 01 to March 03, 2011 — I own a copy

Such a record-breaking book, as I need nine weeks to finish it. A personal possession, as I marked new vocabularies with coloured markers and then scribbled the meaning just above them or way down the page. This book is mine just like any of my limbs.

I guess this book is more than just a literature masterpiece, but an art at it's highest peak!

my newly-found vocabs:

- clairvoyance: n. Power of perceiving things beyond the natural range of senses.
- concupiscence: n. Sexual desire, lust.
- saturnalia: n. Wild party or orgy.

and last but not least,

- solitude: n. a Buendía by blood in a madhouse from a deserted town once called Macondo.


Baca bareng Ufuf mulai 1 Januari :D
