Que Lastima!

I just learned that the two biggest Spanish language bookstores in the country – “Librería Lectorum” and “Macondo,” both on 14th Street in Manhattan – have closed for business within the last 4 weeks. This is terrible news. Gurldogg’s extremely literate wife and in-laws speak primarily Spanish, and this little corridor on 14th has been a great source of both highly desired books and unexpected finds for many years. Every trip to New York involves a pilgrimage to these shops. What are we going to do now? Anyone know of a good online Spanish bookseller?
