Promote your foreign language books here.

I have friends who know other languages. Specifically looking for bibles in Vietnamese and Bengali, but other books and languages as well.

I have two Polish-language books on my shelf.  Amerykanskie Cienie is about the Polish experience in America.  Polacy w Chinach is about Polish people in China.  My husband read both these books and enjoyed them.  Both are in great condition.

I have four small paperbacks in French---three are  "aventures du petit Nicolas"  by J.-J. Sempe et Rene Goscinny:  Le petit  Nicolas, Joachim a des ennuis, et Les vacances du petit Nicolas.  The fourth is Le Petit Prince, by A. de Saint Exupery.  I'd prefer to send them as a group, not separately.

I occasionally post books in Spanish, so you can check my bookshelf.

I'm interested in books in French... poetry, literary theory, philosophy, even novels.
