Read in July, 2014

I first read this book my sophomore year of college in the middle of the night. I remember that I started crying and had to snuffle quietly in my bed because my roommate was asleep, but it got so bad that I had to go into the bathroom to finish the book with the shower turned on because I was sobbing so hard. Well, that happened again today, except I was sitting next to a bridge in Burgos, trying to hide my face from passers-by. Bawling my eyes out at this exceptional, delicate, tremendous story. It's just as moving and wonderful as I remembered it being.
