  1. I’m also joining, but more modestly (6 books). I’ve also already read one (The Snowman by Jo Nesbo, Norwegian) and am currently reading another (We, the Drowned by Carsten Jensen, Danish). It’s a good start!


  2. Looking forward for other contributions. Still in a lookout for a good translated book. There are a lot of professionally translated books that one just can’t seem to decide which one to pick from the shelves, but at least there are those who are willing to expand (or renew) their language vocabulary and check out books in different languages.


    • there are tones of great books translated every year [see the threepercent site if you want a huge database for books to be published in 2015), I’m actually also a professional translation myself, so I like reading books in another language or in translation
