Happy book birthday!
Today is the official publication day of my book, ¿Por qué? 101 Questions about Spanish. Amazon’s book page is sort of funky — the Kindle price is wrong, and they are pessimistic about delivery times. In any case I would recommend ordering directly from Bloomsbury to take advantage of the 35% discount available with order code PQ101.
Please spread the word to your friends and colleagues who care about Spanish, and also consider asking your local and/or university library to order the book. If you patronize an independent bookstore that might be interested in stocking it, do contact me to let me know. Also, I love public speaking, and welcome any opportunities to talk to academic or civic groups within a reasonable radius of New York.
Between teaching and family obligations I have fallen behind on my blogging. Inter alia I want to write about:
- students’ picking up on my English muletilla ‘so’
- why ser + céntrico is confusing
- diminutives in my latest Jordi Sierra novel
and so much more! Hopefully I will soon find the time and energy to pick up this important part of my life.
Congratulations. What a great contribution to not just a better learning processs for the language, but to a better understanding between cultures. We need more people like you willing to invest their time for a better and diverse world based In respect
