Books and bookshops

Some reflections from my trip to Madrid

I am fascinated by books and bookshops and even though I don’t speak a word of Spanish, I couldn’t help but browse the shelves of Casa del Libro och FNAC.

I find it interesting to walk into foreign bookshops, if nothing else but to see if I can figure out with the title is in English (or Swedish). For example at Casa del Libro I found the quite easy title to Hans Fallada’s book Sole e Berlin. Advertised in the window of FNAC was a Spanish version of the Swedish crime writer Camilla Läckberg Las vigilantes del faro.

Do you recognise the English/Swedish equivalents?
