Heather | 11 comments The description for kindle edition of The Lady Chosen, by Stephanie Laurens (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/85...) is in some non-english language, despite the edition language being shown as english. The description for the primary edition (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14...) should be fine, if someone could update the kindle edition.

Thanks :)

Alana ~ The Book Pimp (loonyalana) | 11 comments This is the same issues as above- but for this:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/57...

English edition, and the blurb is all in Spanish (?) I think. I was just trying to look up this book, and the first edition on the drop down was all in Spanish, I thought I may have picked a wrong version and just clicked on an English version, but the blurb is STILL in some funky language. I only speak English, so it shouldn't be any odd settings from browsers or anything like that


Alana ~ The Book Pimp (loonyalana) | 11 comments Fahrenheit 451: la temperatura a la que el papel se enciende y arde. Guy Montag es un bombero y el trabajo de un bombero es quemar libros, que están prohibidos porque son causa de discordia y sufrimiento.El Sabueso Mecánico del Departamento de Incendios, armado con una letal inyección hipodérmica, escoltado por helicópteros, está preparado para rastrear a los disidentes que aún conservan y leen libros. Como 1984, de George Orwell, como Un mundo feliz, de Aldous Huxley, Fahrenheit 451 describe una civilización occidental esclavizada por los medios, los tranquilizantes y el conformismo.La visión de Bradbury es asombrosamente profética: pantallas de televisión que ocupan paredes y exhiben folletines interactivos; avenidas donde los coches corren a 150 kilómetros por hora persiguiendo a peatones; una población que no escucha otra cosa que una insípida corriente de música y noticias transmitidas por unos diminutos auriculares insertados en las orejas.«Fahrenheit 451 es el más convincente de todos los infiernos conformistas.» KINGSLEY AMIS(less)
