Ich? Amerikanische Liebesromane im Original lesen? Das hätte ich mir vor einem kanppen Jahr auch nicht träumen lassen - aber inzwischen klappt das prima und macht wirklich Spaß - und lernen kann man dabei auch noch. Deshalb habe ich einige empfehlenswerte Bücher hier aufgelistet. Zu Anfang braucht man zwar ein gutes Lexikon, aber bald kommt man schon ohne aus.

Erste Bestellmöglichkeit: man bestellt die Bücher bei Amazon-Deutschland oder buecher.de - dort sind die Bücher in der Regel sogar billiger als die deutschen Ausgaben! Also nur Mut, das Angebot ist überwältigend.

Zweite Bestellmöglichkeit: die sog. UBS, Used Book Stores, in den USA. Die Bücher kosten dort ca. die Hälfte des normalen Verkaufspreises und man kann auch Bücher erstehen, die normalerweise bereits vergriffen sind. Als am empfehlenswertesten hat sich "A Romance Haven" erwiesen, bei denen man freundlich bedient wird, die über eine riesige Auswahl verfügen und ausgesprochen faire Lieferbedingungen für den internationalen Versand haben. Man braucht nur eine Kreditkarte (Visa, American Express oder Mastercard) - damit das Bezahlen einfach geht - und einen festen Willen, dem Kaufrausch zu widerstehen.
