    1. So sorry about that, Tony! The Villoro will count toward the next tally, but I updated this list to include your Jufresa post. I either need more coffee or less beer to stay on top of things, I guess. My bad.

  2. Thank you for putting this together for us, Richard, both Spanish Lit Month and all the links to reviews for it. This is one of my favorite events of the summer, and I have not even begun Paris in July or my own Japanese Lit Challenge yet. But, there will be time. First, I hope to finish La Regenta by Alas.

    1. My pleasure, Bellezza--just glad Stu allowed me to co-host SLM with him again and that there are so many enthusiastic readers such as yourself participating! I've had to set La Regenta aside for time considerations, but I look forward to hearing what you make of it when you get there. Cheers!
