I am going to try a new thing here on my blog...a weekly/daily/as I feel like it meme.

This one comes from Booking Through Thursday:

What’s the most desperate thing you’ve read because it was the only available reading material?
If it was longer than a cereal box or an advertisement, did it turn out to be worth your while?

When I was in Argentina, I found it incredibly difficult to find books in English. Those that I could find were pretty expensive. Finally I found an 8$ book on the history of Argentina.

It was definitely longer than a cereal box, and it was kind of worth my while. It was obviously written by a non-native speaker of English, and someone who really loved his country. It was pretty light and fluffy, but did make me interested in learning more Argentinian history.
