Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

This time it's time to soak up a little culture. After the Book Fair was postponed, they go and schedule it for the first two weeks of October. We are not really into reading, but my mother has been reading lately and we are going to this fair so that we have a different experience. Located on the famous Paseo del Arenal, the fair offers a wide variety of stands with publishing houses and bookshops, where you can meet some writers signing their books and having a relaxed conversation with their readers. If my mother were to meet any of them, I'm sure she would faint. She has acquired a taste for the books of Arturo Pérez-Reverte and she would like to take a photo with him. It's not like he is a Hollywood star!

Getting that for you now...
