It's not a book recommendation but a suggestion (if someone said it I apologize and missed it)
If you have a device that can have an ebook reading app or have an ebook reader... Do it! If access is an issue.
There are lots of books I used to try to get that were out of print or had the price jacked way up absurdly. Once I started using ebook apps (I use 4 of them now basically which might be a bit nuts) I had far more options among the things I couldn't previously get, and for far cheaper than paper books. (Like 98%of the time anyway)
Not as enjoyable as the smell and feel of book in the hand for many, but if it means getting the material at all, then it's worth it.
I have kindle, kobo, iBooks, and then a generic e-book and pdf reading app. Whatever bookstores of the greatest selection that you can purchase from, check if there is a way you can work with that, I would say. They might have a device or app or PC app for their ebook selection.
I guess this might be an issue if you don't have a credit card or other payment options though...
There are also a LOT of free and super cheap ebooks and PDFs on various websites and you can find fantastic material that way. That's something worth searching the web and certain types of websites for, regardless but especially if you can't buy online, don't have the money or a credit card or Paypal etc
Sacred Texts was already mentioned - I think I did most of my reading there just on the webpages, and can't recall if it allows downloads, but it's great either way...and that's the only one I could remember off hand because I have reading to catch up on and haven't bothered looking for much new in a long time, go figure lol, but similar sites aren't hard to find. I will post others if I can dig them up or recall them again.
Anyway. Maybe you've been down this route or maybe the availability of ebooks is just as poor for what you are able to access from Gautemala, I don't know the situation.
But if you haven't and are at all able...the ebook route has been totally worth it and allowed me to get stuff I wouldn't have otherwise.
