My preferred reading is the medieval catalan literature           For example:

Book chapter 305 from the Llibre dels feits de Jaume I
E, en aquell temps que nós estàvem a Montpesller, venc-nos aquí lo comte de Tolosa, e el comte de Proença, e haguem grans corts d'hòmens honrats d'aquelles terres que ens venien veer. E açò fo un any aprés la presó de València. E entram en Montpesller el dijous: e el divendres, entre mig jorn e hora nona, fo eclipsis major que anc hom vis de memòria d'aquells hòmens que ara són, car tot lo Sol cobrí la Lluna, e podia hom veer bé set esteles en lo cel. E, ab aitant, quan nós haguem bé feites nostres fazendes en Montpesller, a bé e honrament de nós, faem armar lo bus de Montpesller qui era de vuitanta rems e venguem-nos en tro a Cotlliure; e per terra venguem-nos puis a València.
