Shame it's not english - Although, I love the clean white cased image of A600! Despite the negative press it got, I still love this machine - the closest thing to a laptop!

When a french publisher released a book in french in France by french authors, it's not a shame. No. this is normal!
However I understand your frustration. I will ask for their possible porting in english ...

He he, you spend too much time on computers. In literature, people say "translate" instead of "port", even if the book is about computers.

Here is the short answer of Pix'n Love:
"For now, the Amiga Bible is only in french."
Sorry ...

Just ordered it. Should be a good week next week: my copy of 'The Future was Here" and now the Amiga Bible both should arrive.

Happy days!

Going to spend my holidays in Paris this year with my family.
Guess the book won't be sold in any stores there, right?

You can try at FNAC or Virgin but you have little chance of finding this book.
The easiest way is to order online :-)

On their FAQ they wrote :
"FAQ : Pourra-t-on trouver vos ouvrages dans les librairies comme la FNAC, Virgin, ou les boutiques spécialisées ?
Pix'n Love est d'ores et déjà disponible dans un certain nombre de boutiques ou librairies généralistes/spécialisées, mais également en FNAC, Virgin, Cultura et Centre Culturel Leclerc."

So in plus of the bolds one you can try news agents. But the later are bigger.
