Kindle Spanish Monthly Deals

Kindle Spanish Monthly Deals

I’m happy to see Amazon continuing to expand its support for more languages…and not just because our adult kid is a linguist.😉

More languages often means more diversity of opinion. Even when a book is translated from one language to another (as Amazon does into English with its AmazonCrossing imprint), idiom can change.

When I was in high school, I took more than three years of Russian, because I wanted to be able to read certain things (especially non-fiction) in the original language. I never really got fluent, though. I did much better with Spanish, which I can still read to some extent, at least simple things.

So, I was excited to see the addition of

Interestingly, the

Kindle Monthly Deals

usually say up to 80% off, and these said up to 50% off. There were also 57 books in the Spanish deal, and 339 in the English deal, but it’s still something. 21 of them were in

Kindle Unlimited (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

a much higher percentage than the English list.

That’s great if you want to learn Spanish! I used to read comic books and the Yellow Pages (remember those?) in Spanish when I was learning it…I think that helped a lot.

It looked to me like these were mostly translations: there was a special selection of Haruki Murakami, and Isaac Asimov’s “Yo, Robot” was also featured.

There were also a lot more categories in the  Spanish store! Many of them focused on KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) books, and there is a big promotion for the Mes de autopublicación: (month of self-publishing, I think).

It also seems like once a sale has been created, it sticks around.🙂

Here’s that list of categories:

It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

    Coincidentally, I notice that a number of Michael Connelly’s books (author of the Harry Bosch series, which is now an ‘Amazon Original Series’ in its second season) are available in Kindle Unlimited, where the original books in English are not.

    • Bufo Calvin Says:

      Thanks for writing, Tom!

      That is interesting!

      I looked at it, and the Spanish editions I saw are published by Roca, which is an independent publisher. So that suggests to me that Little, Brown didn’t negotiate Spanish e-book rights. Here is information on Roca (you might need to translate it):

    Thanks! Definitely had to buy “Yo, Robot.” It’s one of my favorites in English, and the Spanish title alone is worth the low current asking price.
