The bookstore I work in has received several foreign language books for kids that we very highly doubt will NEVER sell in our "whitebread" farming community. My boss wants them gone and I was thinking maybe if anyone here was interested I could buy them and post them here. They aren't your expected language books like French and Spanish - there are Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Cyrillic (Russian), and a couple that I'm honestly not even sure what they are. But I can get them dirt cheap with my employee discount especially since I think the manager intends to mark them down even farther just to get rid of them.

I could probably get a list and post the ISBNs here, posting the titles could be difficut since they don't use the English alpahbet. Of course they might not even be in the PBS database, but they should be searchable on Amazon.

Please PM me directly if interested as I don't visit this forum very often.

I'd be interested.  Are there any Greek or Hebrew?

I've sent you a PM as well.  I'd be interested in Chinese, and Hebrew if that one was also an option.

OK this is what I ended up finding - I'm listing the ISBN's since I can't type the titles but none of these books were listed on Amazon U.S.

5 story books in Korean:

ISBN 711514754X

ISBN 8991745598

ISBN 8991745377

ISBN 8991745296

ISBN 899174544X

One book in Russian (Cyrillic) this is a child's singing/talking storybook:

ISBN 9789854077994

3 different German storybooks, none have ISBNs

3 copies of the same Spanish storybook

ISBN 0735816484

PM me if interested in any of these.

Did you say in 2009 that you had some books in Chinese?  Still around? I'm interested if they are children's books,

PM me, thanks
