Kindle and the Spanish Classics

Latin America has produced a number of superb writers, but it's hard to find their work on Amazon Kindle. Amazon boasts 30,000 books in Spanish on Kindle, but most of them are either aimed at young readers or translations from English. I recently started reading on of the few South American classics they do have on Kindle in Spanish, One Hundred Years of Solitude..

It's actually very difficult for me - my vocabulary is too small - but the first three sentences blew me away. Each is a small but gorgeous work of art.

Anyway, I want more of these books for my Kindle.
