Naughty Natalie And Her Romance Novel

A few days ago Natalie wrote a great post over on the Lenguajero blog about how she practiced Spanish by reading a Spanish romance novel.

From the Lenguajero blog:

NatRomanceNovel

I used to read romance novels when I was 13, and I only read them when I was babysitting. I babysat for a family that had stacks of them lying all around their house. I would start one after the kids went to sleep, and then spend the next couple of hours furiously reading it ina desperate attempt to finish it before the parents got home. When I heard them at the door I would throw the book back where I found it, and turn on the tv.

So, when I first started learning/reading in Spanish the first book I chose was a Spanish Harlequin novel called Boda de Conveniencia. It was the first in a 3-book mini-series, Bodas de Sociedad. At the time that I bought this (second-hand in Spain) I was pretty sure that Boda meant “Body”. It doesn’t. (It means wedding.)

I don't really know what medium to reach you on anymore, but this is the one I frequent the most. I have to stay, for some odd reason, the awesomeness of your new project has just recently hit me. I've actually referred it to a lot of people and will start using it myself, since i want to maintain and improve my Spanish. Just wanted to let you know that I think the job you did is standup and amazing. Keep up the good work brother. hit me up when you're in town.
