HAPPY WORLD BOOK DAY!
World Book Day is celebrated in honor of the birth and death of William Shakespeare:
and in honor of the death of Don Quixote author, Miguel de Cervantes:
I have had the good fortune of living in Spain, the birth-country of Cervantes, and have even visited his hometown and where he studied, Alcalá de Henares.
So, to celebrate this wonderful writer, I would like to share a few pictures with you that I took while I was in Alcalá.
Alcalá was an interesting city. Today it is a college town however its history and culture still remain important. It is a city that represents artists and their work, and is proud to be the hometown of Miguel de Cervantes.
I could never conclude a World Book Day post without asking what you are currently reading!

*The first 3 pictures – of Cervantes, Shakespeare, and the World Book Day logo – were taken from their Wikipedia pages. The pictures of Alcalá were taken by me: © Kalie Lyn, 2010.*
