Portuguese Literature...Get Your Read On!

Let's set this off with our guest's suggestions for Portuguese books that are very recommendable for all kinds of students, young people, old people, Erasmus, non-Erasmus and everyone else who is interested in the Portuguese language:

- Miguel Torga, "Diário": Miguel Torga's diary is available in many volumes, obviously it turned some tradition for students to buy the volume of their birth year.

- José Saramago, "Jamgada de Pecha": a novel.

- Fernando Assis Pacheco, "Trabalhos & Paixões de Benito Prada"

Then, our suggestions for places to read and libraries in Coimbra:
