    Quería contarte que luego de una larga espera, por fin está disponible en nuestro blog la “Biblioteca Bolsi & Pulp”. Y aunque la hemos empezado de manera muy humilde, pues tiene pocos títulos, conforme pasé el tiempo está irá creciendo lentamente.
    Puedes visitarla en estén link:

    Y también tenemos una encuesta navideña, en donde ofrecemos como regalo una novela del oeste, la novela ganadora en cuanto sea publicada, pasará también a integrar nuestra naciente biblioteca. Si quieres ver la encuesta para votar, pincha este link:
