Books in Indonesia

Found this book in Kinokuniya at Plaza Senayan, Jakarta. Was very happy. Wow! PEARL S BUCK book!

Well, that was until I look at the title "Maharani". Flip open the book. Eh! Bahasa Indonesia. Aiyo! I can't read Bahasa Indonesia.

What I discovered in Indonesia is that there are many English books being translated into Bahasa Indonesia. It's not just those Harry Potter or Enid Blyton's books. Some recent titles and those which have been made into movies. Shocking!. Why do we seldom see that in Malaysia? Maybe then Malaysian would read more.

One thing lacking is that the price of the books there is higher if compared to Malaysia.Opps!! hopefully books distributors won't that this chance to increase the price again...
