Sometimes it is difficult and expensive to find books in English here in the city of Lima. There are some shops that carry some titles -mainly mass market paperbacks of best sellers- that is why this piece of intelligence goes up in value. Tomorrow, in the Church of the Good Shepherd -Santa Cruz 491 Miraflores, from 10 am to 2 pm- there is going to be a second-hand book fair. It´s not the first time they have it. In fact, I have been there before and have been lucky to find excellent titles at incredible prices (they used to be three for S/. 10!!!). The hall is arranged so that the books wait for you spine-up on large tables, the eager readers line up and examine them, pick the ones they like and proceed to pay one of the volunteer ladies at the door. After that you may go home and start your reading, or you may want to sit at the tables at the back of the hall and have tea or scones or a sandwich or just hang around and talk to the book lovers who gather that day. I´ll be there early in the morning so that I can grab the good ones before they go away to other hands!
