The Plaza Mayor in Salamanca is considered to be the most beautiful square in Spain so imagine my disappointment when, on my recent visit to the ‘Ciudad Dorada’, I wasn’t able to obtain the photographs I would have liked because the square was filled with bookstalls.
Many of the kiosks had an impressive array of books – antiquairian to modern.

What did surprise me was that on one stall was a collection of ‘William books’ – not recently issued copies but old ones just like the ones I used to read as a child only these were in Spanish. I was almost tempted to purchase some but my Spanish is not yet up to reading a complete book – not even a children’s one!
