Even though it's still warm by the UK standards I am used to and the sun is still shining, the drop in temperature has been noticeable. It is the dawn of Autumn, but I'm not expecting conkers, frost and leaves falling off the trees just yet in BCN.

So it is Catalan book week (Setmana del Llibre en Català). I think it will be a while before I'm reading novels in Catalan, as I am still getting to grips with Castellano ('Spanish'). That said, I was impressed to see this huge book sculpture on Gran Via at Passeig de Gracia. The sculpture is is entitled Homenatge al llibre (Homage to the book) and was the work of Catalan artist and poet Joan Brossa.
