  1. I have had copies of JLS and Illusions in Thai for many years now. These translations are often difficult to find in bookshops here in Thailand.
    Do you know of any on-line e-book versions of them as i would like to share with friends.

  2. Dear Richard,
    While living in Texas, I am originally from Belarus, former USSR republic, and that was the time when I discovered your books in Russian translation. With a thirty year delay now I say THANK YOU! And there are lots of your books published in Russian, they even have this website: (titled “Official Russian Site for Richard Bach”).
    All the best,
    Houston, TX

  4. Hola! Saludos desde Argentina!
    En mi lugar de trabajo, una escuela de enseñanza primaria, comparto con mis alumnos un espacio para acercarnos al arte. Todos los días, antes de iniciar la mañana de clases, los docentes leen un recordatorio o efemérides. Me tocará hacerlo el 23 de junio. Buscando algo especial para recordar, mirando fechas, descubrí que un 23 de junio había nacido Richard Bach. Entonces recordé también que a mis 16 años de edad, cuando mi país vivía bajo el gobierno de una dictadura militar, una amada profesora de Literatura, nos invitó a leer Juan Salvador Gaviota. Un canto a la libertad, un impulso para que nos animáramos a conocernos y superar límites. Jamás pensé, en aquel tiempo, que tendría la oportunidad de darte las gracias a mis 51 años.
    Entonces, desde el corazón, por Juan Salvador Gaviota, por Ilusiones y por Ningún lugar está lejos, gracias….

    • Hermoso tu mensaje Mariela. De él se desprende que sos docente en mi país. Tenemos la misma edad y hemos leído a Richard en la misma época de nuestra adolescencia. Sin duda ha influenciado en nuestros rumbos. Aquí dejo mi e – mail para contacto y relatarte mi experiencia, a través de la inspiración de Richard en las escuelas primarias que visité. Gracias Richard por unir a esta familia que somo s tus lectores!.

    Hi! Greetings from Argentina!
    In my workplace, a primary school teaching , I share with my students a space to approach the art . Every day, before classes start in the morning , teachers read a reminder or anniversaries . I must do it on June 23. Looking for something special to remember , looking dates , I discovered that a June 23 Richard Bach was born . Then I also remembered my 16 years old, when my country was under the rule of a military dictatorship , a beloved literature professor , invited us to read Jonathan Livingston Seagull . A hymn to freedom , an impetus for us to meet and exceed animáramos limits. I never thought , at that time , which would have the opportunity to say thanks to my 51 years .
    Then , from the heart , I thank you for Jonathan Livingston Seagull , illusions and no place is far

  6. Hello, Richard!
    A few years ago I read your book “Jonathan Livingstone Seagull”, and told about this unusual thing to my brother, after a while he brought me record of radio performance according to the book “Illusions” to which I listened with a great interest. Your book very much was pleasant to me. I have many questions which occupy me long ago, but there is nobody to talk – about that why we live, about values of this world, about influence of television, about an education system. And quite recently I saw and read your new book “Part-Time Angels”. I saw many answers in this book. Thank you that you speak with me.
    I read your list of excellent books and movies. You know, there is an unusual movie – Andrey Tarkovsky’s “Stalker” (1979). Maybe you saw it. This movie (with subtitlings in English) now here – v=JYEfJhkPK7o&spfreload=10, but on the Internet everything quickly changes.
    There is very good movie of Stanislav Govorukhin based on works Jules Verne – “In search of the captain Grant” (1985) which inspires me.
    With interest I looked at your site. It seems to me that in the section for books in foreign languages there aren’t enough photos of books in Russian 🙂 If you want, I will send you some photo of these books, only write as – through the site or on e-mail… By the way, about studying of languages – there is a site WordDive ( on which it is possible to choose and learn on-line the different languages.

    Best regards,

  7. Hi Richard

    I have read few of your books in Persian but I’m not sure if they had ever contacted you to get the permission for translating and selling those books in Iran’s book marketplace.

    Anyway, I read Jonathan Livingston Seagull when I had 18 years old. It was a gift from a dear friend and that changed everything for me. By reading JLS I learned life is not going to be easy and I have to get prepared to fight through so many hardships and challenges. Although after passing almost 10 years from that time, I should say I had no idea life is going to be this hard and unfair. I’ve went through so many troubles but I’m sure they all have been required for me to become the person that I am today and yet there is assuredly a lot more to encounter on this journey…

    Unfortunately I have not read your last book “Travels With Puff” yet as due to limited access to internationals market, the original version cannot be marketed in Iran. I’m so keen to have the paper version of it but again due to the same issues I couldn’t purchase it from the Internet.

    I have a lot to say but let’s finish off here and only say THANK YOU…

    Fly high and safe

  8. Hello Richard,

    Your books changed my life. I love your books. My favorite Illusions and JLS. Thank you and I’m grateful because You are and you are an amazing author.
    Thank you,

  9. Hi richard, how are you? My name is Aylin, I’m from Argentina. I do not write very well in English, but I will try. I read Illusions when I was 18 (10 years ago) That book generated a great change in everything that I believed until then.
    then i read ONE, bridge to infinit, No place is far, nothing is random and juan salvador gaviota.
    after i read ilusions, thanks to you, I started to understood that religion and faith are two different things, and initiate a change of Self-knowledge and spiritual pursuit having as only guide what the universe has prepared for me. So I keep walking in uncertainty. As you said, we chose which movie we want to see, and I choose a happy and love one!!! soo I hope that everything will finally fit and be good. I would love to chat with you and exchange thoughts. Thank you Richard for opening a huge window in me.
