Where can I find....

This thread is dedicated to places where we can find good books.

Currently I am in search for Gimpel the Fool by Isaac Bashevis Singer, translated into English by Saul Bellow. Can anyone help me find this book? Of course, not through amazon.

Re: Where can I find....

You could have tried in some book centers in Hyderabad or Goa in your last visit. Calcutta used to be famous for good but hard to find books.

You could go to a county or local library and scan the book.

you know what.. local and county libraries now have ebook lending programs as well.. You can download the book on your kindle by using your library card # and after the lending period (say 25 days), the book is automatically gone from your reading device.

I've read a few on my kindle via my local library using this method.

Re: Where can I find....

Last book that I read was Rise and fall of Third Reich by William L Shirer. It took me a month for that. I like the feel of book over e-books.
