FESTIVAL "SOMOS LECTURA" CASA DEL LECTOR - BEST AUTUMN PLAN FOR KIDS

Young passionate readers 
Today in Madrid the rain has allowed me to have a good plan of friends with children, La Casa del Lector located in Matadero organized a Festival called SOMOS LECTURA free for everyone and open to all audiences.

Since 11 a.m., we have been able to enjoy various plays, encounters with writers, magicians, food trucks and storytelling. In the meantime, the children's library also had some very tempting books to keep all the children entertained.

I also took the opportunity to take to my mother who did not want to miss the opportunity to do mindfulness and learn to use his mobile as there were also activities related to technology for seniors.

Story telling
The best thing is that all these activities are available throughout the year, just go to the website and sign up for the different workshops, activities and courses they teach, I encourage you to do it with or without children.

La libreria, a Bookshop for Madrid Lovers (like us)


In the very “castiza” calle Mayor, we discovered a very original book shop, with more than 1,000 references to Madrid!!: La Librería. Of course, we loved it and it was impressive to see books about art, history, curiosities, songs and sayings, terror stories.. all about Madrid! If you are keen on the city, this is for sure, the bookshop you need.

La Central - Much More than a Bookstore


La central de callao My Little Madrid

We are big fans of the fantastic bookstore La Central in Callao! We consider it much more than a bookstore for many reasons. Firstly, they have more than 80 000 book references in several languages and many different sections that avoid the typical collection of best sellers you find elsewhere. It is a library within a 19th century palace. If you feel hungry or want to take a rest, you can also try their great “Bistro” with very tasty food options for breakfast, lunch or tea time. You can even stay for drinks at night in their bar, "el Garito" , where many events and book presentations take place.

National Geographic store in Madrid - New Menu

national geographic party in madrid

Although the National Geographic Store is in Madrid since 2010, I had never visited it simply because I did not know about its existence. It was a nice surprise to be invited to the renewal presentation party that took place on Thursday. And even more surprising to realize that this huge space has nothing to envy to the London National Geographic Store, it is even better! Specially the restaurant and its new menu.

Feria del Libro - a Yearly Must Go!

Feria del libro Madrid
I have been to Feria del Libro every year since I was a child. I used to go with my grand father.  He was a voracious reader and his influence has made me love books from a young age. Reading has been a passion of mine since then and I never miss this big event, where editors, writers, bookshops, readers and book lovers in general gather and share novelties and old hits at the Retiro gardens.

Second hand books at La Cuesta del Moyano


Since we still are in an almost-holiday-period and the weather is becoming less agressive I propose a nice traditional walk; La Cuesta del Moyano. It has been long time since my last walk through these stalls, I had almost forgotten, but on my way to the Hoper exhibition it has been a nice surprise to discover this Madrid land mark not only unspoiled but improved (now pedestrian) and restored.

Books - My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece (Annabel Pitcher)

My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece is a wonderful first book by Annabel Pitcher. Its reading took me back to another book I liked very much "The Curious Incident ofthe Dog in the Night-time" by Mark Haddor but also to some of my best favorites in Spanish "Un Mundo para Julius" by Alfredo BryceEchenique and "El Principe Destronado" by Miguel Delibes, all of them have in common that they are written in a first person perspective of a young boy.
"My Sister..." is not only very intelligently constructed and written but reflects the actual way of life in real England, a modern novel of manners. Worth reading!!
