This is part of the shelf where I place my books in Spanish. At the left, there is "Moby Dick". In English. Along with "Treasure Island" and all the books of Louisa May Alcott were my favorites. I think that because of them, I wished to learn another lenguages and to travel. Anyway, Moby Dick is in my heart, I was fascinated by the tattooed Queequed; but mostly, because I "collect" opening lines and "Call me Ishmael" along with Garcia Marquez's "Chronicle of a Death Foretold": "The day they killed Santiago Nasar got up at 5.30, after attending the day before the wedding of Angela Vicario" I think are the best of my "collection".
Anyway, apart my love for Moby Dick as a book... I can understand Captain Ahab: I've badly injured my ankle two days ago. Now I am walking around home as if I have an wooden leg!lol
