      Hello, we had some people tonight who read the story in English and came to listen to the discussion. We'd be happy to explain new words you hear. You're also welcome to jump into the discussion in English, and we can help translate it. You are welcome to the next meeting.

    By the way, if you prefer it in PDF format, it is the second short story in Borges' collection La Memoria de Shakespeare, which you can find here:

    Hi Ellen, if you would like a print copy, it appeared in Borges' collection of short stories called La Memoria de Shakespeare. The Spanish edition is available on Amazon.com; otherwise, a digital copy can be found here: http://archivosborges.blogspot.com/2008/01/tigres-azules.html
