thanx for all your hard work. do you have a listing for foreign language books also?

especially interested in Russian and Italian!

again, thanx

by mr6n8 on 6. August 2012 - 23:58  (97315)

I once started looking into that(for Spanish sites as we have pages in Spanish here).
I realized that I would not be able to as I could not effectively translate the sites to make sure they were legitimate.

by pratomorone (not verified) on 7. August 2012 - 15:48  (97343)

send them on to me if you wish, I will translate the Italian, my wife, the Russian.

by mr6n8 on 8. August 2012 - 12:54  (97389)

Sorry, I got rid of those links quite some time ago.

For now, I already have 25 pages of free ebook offerings to maintain and that is more than enough for the free time I have.

I am not certain if this site would allow additional foreign language listings, but if you are interested, then you could contact the site administators.

Thanks for the offer though.
