    Hello :) This Christmas I read The Canterbury Tales which was written in 1387 by Geoffrey Chaucer. This book is about a group of pilgrims who go on a pilgrimage to Canterbury on the "Black Death" time. On the way, every character has to tell a history. I recommend you to read this book if you like short tales and you want to learn new vocabulary. Hope you enjoy it!

  12. Good days everyone. This Christmas holidays I've read the Raven, one of Edgar Allan Poe's poems, because is my favourite. It is about a widowed man that being one night at his house he heard someone calling him, he thought it was his late wife, Leonor,but no, it was a raven, which he related to the devil, because its presence and how it said 'nevermore' disturbed him.
    I definitely recommend it. Enjoy reading!
