Friday Finds: Pablo Neruda

This is the season of Pablo Neruda for me and I went on a hunt for his books. I have in mind used books and found them to have character, just like this man. Special.

With great bargains and free delivery, there is no reason not to shop online. I had an awesome time on BetterWorldBooks.com and bought 13 Pablo Neruda books, and one other really interesting non-fiction, The Man Who Loved Books Too Much recommended by my friend in the US. I worked successfully within my budget of US$50, and on average each book—even the hardcovers—costs about US$3.50. Awesome deal, isn’t it? Here are the stuff I bought...


Non Pablo Neruda books:
  1. The Man Who Loved Books Too Much: The True Story of a Thief, a Detective, and a World of Literary Obsession by Allison Hoover Bartlett

Pablo Neruda books:
  1. The Book of Questions
  2. Veinte Poemas de Amor y Una Cancion Desesperada
  3. Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair
  4. Memoirs
  5. Fully Empowered (English and Spanish Edition)
  6. Captain's Verses (English and Spanish Edition)
  7. Fully Empowered
  8. Still Another Day (Spanish and English Edition)
  9. Pablo Neruda: Nobel Prize-Winning Poet (Hispanic Biographies)
  10. Neruda at Isla Negra
  11. Pablo Neruda: A Passion for Life
  12. My Life With Pablo Neruda
  13. Late and Posthumous Poems, 1968-1974: Bilingual Edition

BetterWorldBooks.com (for used books) is one of my favorite online booksellers. The other one is BookDepository.com (for new books). Both offer free delivery worldwide.

P/S: Hmmmm… I think I've bought two of the same books (Fully Empowered)…
