Shkrimtari Jorge Luis Borges propozon të lexohen këta 74 libra

Detyra iu dha nga Hyspamerica – një botues nga Argjentina, ndërsa kësisoj shkrimtari i njohur nisi të krijonte listën e tij. Libraria personale e tij përmban tituj nga më të ndryshmit, disa të përkthyer në anglisht e disa vetëm në gjuhën spanjolle.
