My first adult book was Ben Hur, (a heavy book for a ten-year girl) I was ill and bored and my father started reading the scene about the race. ‘Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ’ (it’s the original title), was such an exciting part that I decided to read the whole book.
By the way, best book in spanish language is Love in the Time of Cholera, it was written by Nobel Prize, Gabriel García Márquez, and it’s the most touching love story I’ve even read.

The book that made a difference for me was Autobiography of a Yogui, which led me to my favourite book: "Kriya Yoga: Synthesis of a personal experience. Author: Ennio Nimis"
