More Than 200 Books

June 16, 2010

There were a bunch of books donated and now we have more than 200 books. This milestone is a particularly special one to me because LibraryThing, the site I use to keep track of all the books, only lets free members store up to that many. So, my sister donated the $25 dollars that was needed for us to have a lifetime membership adding as many books as we ever get. =]

Speaking of my sister, she was so kind as to write down the titles of the Spanish children encyclopedias that are owned by one of the local libraries. I figured that whatever they bought must be pretty good. Amazon only has two of the three she listed. Click the images to go to the corresponding Amazon/sellers page.

$399.00 - Published in 2001

$437.99 - Published in 2006

Apparently the first one has a relatively selective amount of entries and the second has a lot more, but they are briefer. The other one my sister wrote down, “Enciclopedia de los Pueblos del Mundo,”  is about different countries and their peoples.

About $42 depending on the site - Published in 2005
