Without books there would be no culture. Without culture there would be no wisdom. Without wisdom there would be no future. A mankind without books would be a mankind without a future.
I intend to do my bit to build that future by making books available to the almost 600 million Spanish speakers around the world. Would you like to join this exciting journey?
