Hi. I'm António, I live in Portugal and I've got a Portuguese Literature Degree. Personally, I believe reading is a mixture of frustration and enlightenment: there's that strange feeling of discontent which drives the reader crazy when entering a Library (I'm capitilizing "Library" as I imagine Borges'library)and realizes that life is too short and every row of books is long as a miniature of the Great Wall of China; on the other hand, every book worths the pain, every book is your personal nirvana. By the way, if you haven't yet been introduced to Fernando Pessoa, then you're letting escape Siddhartha Gautama himself.
