INJUSTICE: Books I want to read, but cannot be found in Spanish (Part 1)

Hello! I'm from Argentina, and I come with a proposition. Going through GoodReads I've found books and authors that seem to be very good, and I'm really looking forward to read them. But, sadly, I haven't been able to find any of those in Argentina, simply because they have not been translated into Spanish. And if they are, they can not be found here because there aren't published here. I don't think it is fair, because I've seen translations to Croatian, Slovenian, Norwegian, Swedish, Turkish, Portuguese, Dutch, and Hungarian, but Spanish seems to be the forgotten language, when it is spoken both in Central and South America.

But I have faith, and that's a strong thing. Perhaps, with your support, we can achieve something. You know the quote from "Mulan": A single grain of rice can tip the scale.

You can find the Spanish versions of both lists here: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/7... and here https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/7...

Sí, lo sé. Y también "La Reina Hereje". Pero di vuelta el mundo, y no lo encontré. Incluso contacté a la editorial, pero me dijeron que no lo tienen, ni planean volver a imprimirlo. Y ninguna librería pareció conocer a Michelle Moran, incluso cuando consulté más de 10, más o menos... Deben haberlo llevado a España nada más. Por eso lo incluí en las listas

Lau Si tenés tarjeta de crédito o Paypal lo podés comprar en Book Depository :) http://www.bookdepository.com/Neferti...

Uy, genial, gracias! Es algo de Argentina, o de otro país? Porque lo encontré por Amazon, pero con esto de los impuestos en Aduana, no me animo a pedirlo.


message 5: by Lau (new)

Lau De nada :) yo hice estragos me compré un par ahí.

Son de Inglaterra ellos, y al menos a Mar del Plata llegan seguro y no pasan por aduana (aparte tampoco te cobran envío, que es con lo que te aniquila Amazon).

Igualmente todos los libros que me pedí estaban en inglés. Se supooooone que mientras estén en el idioma original no te cobran impuestos, aunque la otra vez pedí uno que no lo estaba y me lo trajeron a casa igual.
La clave acá es pedirlos individualmente para que te los manden en paquetitos chicos que lleve el cartero "común".


message 6: by Cintia (new)

Cintia Ah, mirá vos, no tenía idea! Lo tendré en cuenta! Acá en Buenos Aires, si pedís algo por Amazon, tenés que ir a buscarlo a la aduana de Ezeiza, y te sacan la cabeza con el impuesto de entrarlo al país, tengo entendido. Una profesora de mi facu me dijo que te cobran lo mismo que si pedís un libro o un medicamento, y que si podía evitarme el engorro, mejor, que no pidiera nada si no era extremadamente necesario...

Así que sos de Mar del Plata! Hermosa ciudad, el año pasado hice un trabajo, y me gustó aún más. Preciosa para visitar en invierno!


message 7: by Lau (last edited Aug 22, 2014 11:09AM) (new)

Lau Qué vuelteros que son. Acá la aduana está dentro del correo del centro, pero igual te arrancan la cabeza. Además si te entra algo por ahí (me pasó una vez que pedí varios juntos y vinieron en una caja) ahora con la nueva ley de importaciones te tenés que registrar como importadora para retirarlo (igual mi caja fue previo a esa ley).

Creo que con The Book Depository no hay problema, podés probar con uno solito que no sea demasiado caro. En mi caso hice eso y salió bien. Y llega rápido.

Esta es una ciudad muy linda pero ahora no está tan bonita como supo ser. Viniste acá para trabajar?
Jaja sos la primer persona que veo que dice que es linda para venir en invierno, supongo que te bancás bien el frío.


message 8: by Cintia (new)

Cintia Jaja, no, lo digo porque siempre que la visité fue en invierno, para ir a la playa mi familia siempre eligió lugares con menos gente, no somos de ir de vacaciones a grandes ciudades, porque la idea es salir un poco de Buenos Aires...

No fui a trabajar allá, todavía estudio, pero dada mi carrera, capaz algún día tenga que ir. Estudio para Guía de Turismo, y me muero de ganas de viajar, pero por lo pronto... no me alcanza ni para el pasaje, jaja. El año pasado hice un trabajo sobre Mar del Plata, y me encantó la parte de la Loma Stella Maris, que no conocía, con las grandes casonas y todo... He ido caminando desde el centro hasta el puerto, y la rambla, el Torreón del Monje, es todo muy bonito. Me encanta ver las casas antiguas todavía sobreviviendo en medio de los edificios modernos. ¿En qué parte de Mardel vivís?

Me colgué, perdón. Investigaré un poco lo de The Book Depository, a ver si consigo algo, y te aviso si es así. Acabo de mandarte un mensaje porque no podía contestar las recomendaciones, gracias por cierto!


message 9: by Lau (new)

Lau Jaja nos hemos ido de tema, te respondo por mensaje ya que lo tenemos :)


message 10: by Katy (new)

Katy Qué bueno The Book Depository, ¡no lo conocía! Jajajaja es bueno meterse a investigar por Goodreads. Siempre encontrás algo interesante que no sabías. ¡Espero que funcione!
