Welcome to our Message Board. This is where we post about stuff we don't want you to miss between issues of our Bella News newsletter.

50 books about Bolivia newly published in 2012
We've added over 50 new books about Bolivia to our Bolivia Book Shop, which you can access here or by clicking on the green Bella Store tab found on every page of the site. All new books added are in English and published in 2012... some are soon-to-be published and are currently available for pre-order. You'll find new recipe books, fiction and non-fiction, travel guides, country reports, and more. Below, you'll find a sampling of 16 books about Bolivia. Hover your mouse over the book images for additional information about each. Our cool Bolivia Book Shop is an Amazon.com store so you can feel secure about ordering online.
What you maybe didn't know about Bella Store:
Bella Store, in affiliation with the National Geographic and Novica online stores, makes hundreds of items available to you from Bolivia, the Andes region and other parts of South America. Nat Geo and Novica regularly inform us of upcoming sales and discounts so we can pass them on to you.
Purchasing online through Bella Store is safe, easy and guaranteed. All payments are processed by National Geographic and Novica, who ship the items directly to you from their warehouses, and they have great return policies should you not be satisfied.
When you purchase Novica items, you are helping artisans on our continent improve their living conditions. Novica is a fair trade shop. In association with National Geographic, Novica is helping to preserve artistic traditions for future generations. You can also make 0% artisan loans, as I have, to help the artisans featured on their site purchase the materials they need. I love that when you buy at Novica you can read the personal story of the artisan who created the beautiful item you chose, and that you can see whose family will benefit directly from your purchase.
When you purchase National Geographic items you help the organization continue its exploration, education and conservation initiatives.
What you might not know about Bella Store, is that in addition, I've pledged to donate a percentage of all sales to Wanides, the Association of Washingtonians for Needy Bolivian Children,
when you make a purchase through our Andean Handcrafts Shop. Any purchase you make will help two non-profit organizations at once.
Help broadcast the news about Bolivia
In an effort to provide a clear, unbiased, and multi-sided picture of what is happening in Bolivia we've added a Bolivia News Forum to our site. While you can simply read the latest Bolivia news online here, we're aware that many readers want more details about daily occurrences and events in Bolivia in English. We don't, however, have the time to translate news articles for our readers every day. Therefore, we've set up our news forum so that you, our readers, can actually contribute your own translations of newspaper articles about Bolivia to our site. Help us spread the news!
