    Hi all,

    Looks as if one of the bulk-order stores actually has Spanish/English dictionaries! BUT: They're selling them as a case of 72 books. (No idea how many pages, etc., as no actual specs are listed.) I only need 30 -- would anyone be interested in sharing?

    Here's a pic:

    And you can find the listing here

    Looks like they'd be $0.53 each, plus shipping. I'll put the order in and send out the remainder if anyone might be interested...??

      Oh I would, but I don't have enough time. I've been checking target for the Spanish for Dummies $1 books, but to no avail.

      Oh well....

        I would totally be interested! I prob only need 25-30. We could split the order 50/50! I am in Canada but I cant imagine the delivery fee being more than $15/$20? That a guess.... but I would totally be willing to pay that... that still works out to being just over $1 a book. What a deal! PM me if they are still up for grabs!

          I did the same thing...went to probably 4 or 5 different Targets looking for the Dummies book. Only found the "Daily Spanish" version, which was more about teaching grammar than just giving useful phrases like "where's the bathroom?"

          EDIT:
          40 are still available for anyone who's interested...

          Anyone?

              MSRP: $5.95
              Pub. date: 2004
