That book meme

From several people, including madknits, jwg, bear4otter, and rsc Rules: bold=read, italic=started but didn't finish, underline=saw the movie.

I marked the titles of translations from Spanish with '*'; these works I have read or started in Spanish. Two are by García Márquez, who is perhaps the most famous contemporary Colombian author: his Cien años de soledad is one of his most demanding works to read for second-language speakers of Spanish. I've also read shorter works by Cervantes, but Don Quixote is both extremely long and written in 16th-century Spanish; Spanish Literature programs generally teach this book in its own one-semester course.
