Gabo celebrates his birthday making "One Hundred Years of Solitude" digital

One Hundred Years of Solitude will Be on Cyberspace

This is the legal version, of course. You may find a bunch on Internet already, which are plenty of errors, by the way.

Thought it was good to share. For those who love Gabo's books.

Enjoy!

Did you read the article? :-) ...

It's not free. And I believe copyright laws still apply.

It's about 5,99 €. You need to go to leer-e.es website. But honestly? I am having some issues with the buying process. Not Amazon like at all, lol ...

--UPDATE--

For those in USA, this may not work. GEO restrictions!

If you're in Spain or Europe, it may work.

Bummer!

Yeah,

I don't understand why he's so reluctant to technology or make those more available.

If he or his publisher is trying to avoid piracy, they are not. Although I don't have those (only paper version) it is well known you can find piracy ebook versions of his books online. Typos and Spanish errors should be very common on those I'm sure.

I may try after work and see if I can use a proxy server and buy via Amazon Spain. Or maybe ask my brother so he can buy it from Colombia. But, he's a doctor :-( ... he's very "dangerous" with computers and behind a keyboard ... lol ...

However, I know whisper-sync won't work after removing DRM protection, which defeats part of the main purpose of buying it via Amazon anyway.

Just wanted to add here as well that the book is also available for the Kindle on Amazon (at least for Spain and the US, not for Latin America)

Yeah, saw your other post. It was not few days ago. I even called Amazon USA.

Karma for that! Thank you so much ...

I was excited to see this post, even more excited to see it was available in the US, and appalled when I saw the price! $36 for an e-book?!

No idea what are you talking about ...

I paid 6.99 dollars for the Kindle version. However, something weird happened. It looks the Kindle version is no longer available? I have it on my Kindle device though ...

*** EDIT ***

Yes, it looks like my friends from Amazon removed the USA Kindle version...hmmm...

Hmmm... At least they probably won't pull a 1984 on you.

At the time of my original post, I followed the link provided by "andreabc" and the price was indeed $36. Checking just now, I see that the price has been changed to $6.99.
