We were muy excited to see that yesterday’s Google Doodle celebrated what would have been the 91st birthday of Colombian writer and Nobel Prize of Literature recipient Gabriel Garcia Marquez (Gabo!). The colorful artwork features a visual depiction of his 1967 literary masterpiece, Cien años de soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude).
Google would like to remind you that you really should finally go ahead and read Cien Años de Soledad by Gabriel García Márquez (arguably one of the best novels ever written in any language) if you haven't already. pic.twitter.com/ZOULdvlHVF
