Sales of "Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent" soar to the top of the list after Hugo Chavez publicly hands a copy of it to Barack Obama. Are you going to read it?

I might. I don’t know as much about Latin American history as I should.

Not planning to right now but I may eventually. I am not a fan of what Mr. Chavez is doing to Venezuela and to Venezuelans, where I once lived.

@Mamradpivo Then you’ll probably find it rather shocking. I know a good amount. Give it a read.

This book has been on my to-read list for a while now, but, like you, I am determined to read it now after I heard of these news. I’ve been told it’s a very interesting book.

I read it 6 months ago. It’s actually a great book. It brings up a lot of issues that most US Americans don’t know about, or have never looked at in that light. My friends and I were really shocked and amused to read these news articles about how it’s becoming a best seller now. Imagine if your college trig textbook suddenly became a bestseller? Yeah…
