Of Books and Bookshops

TBR-2 022 Estudio en Escarlata is a bookshop in Madrid which is always worthwhile a visit. I went today with my book list. I make lists after having bought several times a book that I already had.

My intention was to buy mainly books in Spanish from Spanish and Latin-American authors. Unfortunately (or fortunately) Guillermo Orsi’s Ciudad Santa (Holy City) and Nadie ama a un policía (No-One Loves a Policeman) were sold out. And it was not worth to order them; most business are closed in Spain during August and publishers won’t send them before September.  The same thing happened with Teresa Solana’s Atajo al Paraíso (A short Cut to Paradise). However I did manage to buy the three books in the photo; the three well below the 300 page benchmark.
