  6. Zuzana says:

    Dear Paulo,

    in Slovakia the book was printed on July 7 (from publishers website), distributed around July 20th. Already bought it, read it, great one and probably number one by now too. :-) THANKS FOR IT. ALL THE BEST.

  7. Raziel says:

    Sir Paulo, how about Middle East? When is the exact date of publication? I am a Filipino but working in Doha, Qatar. Aleph will be published in Philippines on September as far as I know but Middle East will got it this month right? So I might be able to get it earlier and I don’t need to ask my relatives to buy for me in my country.

  8. nirali says:

    Dear Paulo,

    Even though you have disclaimer about you not deciding the publication dates…. all the same the order seems somehow mysterious! I can’t for september as thats when Aleph comes to my country.

    it`s interesting to see in Portugal a new trend of having on sale books on every corner of our neighbourhood; post office, supermarket, etc. Yes, ur book Aleph has been on shelves for a long time now, but i still haven`t read it. At the moment im reading Zahir, where i`m desperately looking for simbols as i do in every book of urs. We all need to make changes in our lives from time to time, and u happens to be my “spiritual guide”. It was by chance i pick up one of ur books at the library two years ago, without knowing who u really were.Ever since, i never let u go.tnx for symbols and tnx for being part of my life.

  17. i hope it will be sold all around for the ones whose heart are lonely and coelho you give hopes,possitive love to the world-
    we love you-

    Enjoy the beautiful Cratio ..
    Wonderful country and people–

    Amerique Latine et Mexico : 8 aout
    Republique Slovaque : 9 aout
    La Hollande : 25 aout

    Mr. Conductor, do you have a specific date in September that ALEPH will be released in the U.S.? I definitely do not want to miss a chance to board this train. I have been sitting at the station for over a year now…. waiting patiently, of course. ;-j

  35. Soami says:

    And in Italy?

  36. eleonora says:

    continua,continua…sempre e per sempre****

  37. Heimo Kruschinski says:

    Frustrating! I do not mean the publication in Croatia, of course. The date of the German edition. Takes a very long time, I’m looking forward to the book. I wish you much success in Croatia. A number 1 would be very nice!

    I wish all a wonderful day

    1. CG says:

      … and why not take the english edition? It will be released in September I think.

      liebe Grüsse,

    2. Heimo Kruschinski says:

      Character flaw. :-) I write and read in German. It would be nice if I could read Portuguese. English is also in this case a translation. So I wait. However, I’ve been thinking about it.

      Ich wünsch dir einen wundervollen Abend Claudia

    3. CG says:

      Of course you are right:
      reading in portuguese would be the best …
      Every translation may loose in some way.
      Ich würd’s auch lieber im Original lesen! :)

      liebe Grüsse,

  38. Zynab says:

    I can’t wait Aleph launching in Lebanon..
    Hope sooon
    Endless Love,

  39. Annie says:

    well tradition IS tradition and we like to keep it that way! And we like challenges ;o)!
    In any case, I have a feeling it will become #1 in ALL of them!!

    Crossing fingers anyway :o)

    Love and Gratitude

  40. Sasa Gorse says:

    Dear Mr Coelho,

    Would it be possible to get in touch with you for an interview through e-mail? I am director of translation company Alkemist, Slovenia, which beginning was very much inspired by your work. According to the fact that you are a worldwide writer who’s work is beeing translated in many many languages I would like to ask you some questions regarding your prespective on translator’s work. Your answers would be published in our magazine Alkemist.

    Kind regards,

    Saša Gorše

  42. densi says:

    welcome to my station :) godspeed to this book all over august

    How many loved your moments of glad grace,
    And loved your beauty with love false or true;
    But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
    And loved the sorrows of your changing face.

    sretno / boa chance !
