5.10 Kia Ora: A Māori language greeting which has entered New Zealand English, Kia Ora means literally "be well/healthy" and is translated as an informal "hi". Read a book originally written in a language that is not your native language.

The author's website http://www.carlosruizzafon.co.uk/ has lots of extras- the walking tour (in some editions) and music he wrote to accompany the book

Isabell (purzel) | 247 comments Do you have to read the book in your native language or can it be read in the language it was originally published in?

I read a lot books originally written in English and prefer reading them in their "true" language rather than translations, but if need be I could probably come up with a translation, so just checking.

The only condition is that the book should have been originally written in a language other than your native language. If your native language is not English, you could read a book in English or a translation to your native language or any other language.

Isabell (purzel) | 247 comments Perfect. Thanks for clarifying that bit.

Amanda (amandapearl) | 273 comments So initially I had The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but then I did 20.2 and one of my random words was "tattoo" so I moved it to that section. Will Love in the Time of Cholera work? I think so because I'm pretty sure it was written in Spanish originally.

It does, the author's website confirms the original Spanish publication
