In these last days of my current 2-month visit, I engage in a mad dash of running around to stores to buy books and gifts for friends and family. Yesterday I went to one of the very best Cuban bookstore is in which everything is new and for sale in moneda nacional, the prices there are a ridiculous low for a person from United States. The stack of books you’re looking at in this picture, cost me slightly over $5.00 CUC for the entire stack.
Literally 135 Cuban pesos moneda nacional. The large format book at the bottom of which I bought to contain mental exercise to help people to maintain their mental agility as they age the three light blue covered books is a relationship manual, there is a book of Puerto Rican short stories, a book on the history of psychoanalysis in Cuba, and finally, the pleasure syndrome a history of pleasure in human sexuality.
