Has anybody found a source of books by non-Russian authors that have been translated into Russian? I haven't come up with much. Maybe it is rare that American/British authors are translated into Russian. If anyone has their own personal list, that would be appreciated also.

Kniga.com is a good source for Russian language books.... You can find quite a few by American/British authors there. Of course, you're much more likely to find "classics" rather than anything on the current bestseller list.

Unfortunately, the site is not particularly user friendly and the search engine on the site is pretty useless for searching in English.... but look around and you might find a few things of interest.

Check Google to see if you've got a Russian book store nearby. Chances are good if you live in a fairly large urban area. Kniga.com came to my mind also, but if you can get it locally you'll save shipping costs.

This is NY's biggest Russian bookstore. If you order for $60 or more, they ship for free.

My Irina is reading The Maltese Falcon which in side-by-side Russian/English. She also has Hamlet, in this same format. She is crazy smart. I might be ready to try Go Dog Go in Russian.
