Around here we LOVE reading world literature. It offers us a fascinating glimpse into how other societies operate, challenges us to see things from a different cultural perspective, and usually informs as much as it entertains.

Sadly however, it’s estimated that less than three percent of all books that are published in the United States on a yearly basis are translations. While we can’t rectify this problem, we can strive to call greater attention to the works of translation that we’ve personally read and reviewed.

Whether you’re a translation aficionado searching for your next great #translationthurs read, or you’re simply looking for something new that may be a bit out of your comfort zone, you’re sure to find something that pleases.
