A library that looks like a bookstore ;)

Libros usados necesitan amor

Used books need love too!!!

 

 

Ese cliché de que a pesar de tener libros para leer siempre quieres más es parte de tu vida también?. Entonces dale una oportunidad a los libros usados.

 

Guía de cómo obtener libros usados en Alemania:

 

Estás de intercambio? Eres estudiante? Debes ahorrrar y babeas en las vitrinas de las librerías? 

 

1.- Averigua dónde queda la Biblioteca Municipal en el lugar de Alemania donde resides ("Stadtbücherei").

 

2.-Muchas veces en la entrada suelen haber letreros como "Verschenken", eso significa que puedes tomar los libros que desees sin tener que pagar nada. 

    -Si el letrero dice "Spenden" significa que puedes tomar libros pero debes dar una donación, que suele ser lo que desees dar y no seas tan tacaño ;)

     -La otra opción es que diga "Flohmarkt" , (mercado de pulgas), dentro de los mismos libros en la primera página verás cuánto sale cada libro, muchos no salen más de 5 euros.

 

3.- Orgullosamente llévatelos a casa 

 

 

 

GRACIAS a la Stadtbücherei Kempten que mis nuevos libros usados son:

 

-"El Umbral de los dioses" by Varios autores

-"Der illustrierte Mann" by Ray Bradbury

-"Wesen und Werden der deutschen Dichtung" by Georg Ried

-"Theatre" by Marivaux

-"Abschiedsvorstellung für Monsieur P." by Agatha Christie

-"Hiroshima mon amour" Marguerite Duras

-"Elizabeth von Armin. Elizabeth und ihr Garten"

Giving a chance to Latinamerican authors

Yes, I grew up in Southamerica, yes I Know about Cortázar, Borges, Skármeta, Fuentes, Allende, etc... 

And I am waiting for the "post -modernism" of latinamerica.

But where are those authors? where are those writers? 

It seems that litetary agents for southamerican writers are just hanging around Spain, multiply themselves there, and living happily ever after with what they already got. 

 

But how about the young blood? do those writers even exists? 

I like to say yes, but they are not typing in a coffe shop, they are mostly teachers fighting for a chance to be read, most of them are even working in marketing as creative staff and time to time they made it, to the first publication or with luck to a second book that will not be sold in a bookstore. The writer probably will sell it to relatives and the latter will say "I am not a fan of reading, but great work".

The book will be put somewhere, the writer will be working as a civilian and its art unknown to anyone else outside the circle.

 

Making new markets, bringing the chance to be heard and more Bookfairs might be the tools to speak up and let them have a chance to these new authors. It is not that they haven´t try, the circumstances have changed, the reader has changed, but I am working on the hope, (secret project), and let´s see how it will develop.

His first novel, a humorous fantasy entitled The Carpet People, appeared in 1971 from the publisher Colin Smythe. Terry worked for many years as a journalist and press officer, writing in his spare time and publishing a number of novels, including his first Discworld novel, The Color of Magic, in 1983... more
