The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

My Invented Country: A Nostalgic Journey Through Chile - Isabel Allende - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book My Invented Country:

Isabel's memories of growing up in Chile.

My favorite Isabel Allende quote from the book:

"Can you define reality? Isn't everything subjective?"

Questions to ponder while reading My Invented Country:

Did you know Chile had its own 9/11?

Where would you go if you had to emigrate?

My thoughts about My Invented Country:

One of my favorite storytellers.

I had no idea you should store china on the bottom shelf.

I have a hankering for empanadas now.
