Welcome to the Spanish Reading Club!!
From next May 2005, you can join our new Club. We'll read a book (in Spanish!) every month, and the Spanish Language Forum will be open to all your comments, notes or questions.

I write monthly articles for "Think Spanish" ("Piensa en español") since 2002. All "Think Spanish" articles are written in Spanish, and they include a Spanish/English glossary. You'll also have the option to buy this magazine including a CD. Nice way to learn about Spanish language and customs!
