Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

The BOTD today seems to be in error - it's the Spanish edition of Jorge Newberry's book.

So, if we can’t read Spanish, we can’t say we downloaded and read the sample? We can’t enter in today’s BOTD and lose all our entry points?

You should still check the sample on Amazon to see the format of the book.

Sorry. Last time I read anything in Spanish was in High School, but at least I tried. Would recommend to Spanish readers, but I'll have to pass. Congrats BOTD, hasta la vista-

I approached it by saying I can't read Spanish but then shared how I felt about the book in English.

Indeed, it is awesome to see other language books being promoted. It gives me the idea that we're becoming international.
