♡ 46 ( +1 | -1 ) Russian chess booksHi! I wish here are many players from Russia. So question to them: I'd like to know if professional chess books are still publishing in Russian (in past times there was a lot wery good books). I tried to look through online bookshops I find some of chess books but I didn't see any solid studies for specified opennings (as Pirc, Caro-Kann, Roy Lopez (Spanish) and so...) Could somebody help with that?

♡ 32 ( +1 | -1 ) I saw - in USD... Thanx calmrolfe, anyway I found more interesting books from pre-2000 years :-) on that site. And prices - new books are comparable with [English] books on Amazon, older is considerably cheaper. One problem could be - delivery. I've experienced with Amazon, but I'm unknown for that on that site.
♡ 49 ( +1 | -1 ) deliveryI also have no experience of their delivery times or reliability. However, the company has been around for a long time and is run by enthusiasts, so I'm imagining that they would be honourable people to do business with.
I am lucky in that we have many second hand book shops where I can pick up chess bargains, I recently got a copy of Batsford Chess Openings for £4, which I am well pleased about !
