Thanks to a spirited discussion of Sarmiento's often hyperbolic Facundo, there were more than twice as many ALoD posts in October as there were in September. Of course, my stats monkey reminds me that there were only two such posts in September. That being said, gracias to Tom and Rise for their reading/writing contributions this month. Not yet sure what November will have in store on the Argentinean lit front here at Caravana, but given the "serious" nature of the other reading plans in place, don't be too surprised if J.R. Wilcock's The Wedding of Hitler and Marie Antoinette in Hell makes its long-awaited appearance at last. That would slap a smile onto your Argentinophile book-blogging face now, wouldn't it?
