Challenge Completed: Lost In Translation 2009

The Lost In Translation Challenge is another reading challenge that ended with December, even though I'm just getting around to writing a wrap-up post. It was hosted by Nonsuchbook, and asked participants to read six books in translation during the year.

This was another fun challenge. I read several books that were outside my normal "comfort zone," and a couple that had been on my "must read" list for several years. I also discovered several authors who were new to me.

Here's the list of books I read, with links to reviews. I'm still missing a couple of those reviews, but I'm hoping to remedy that later in the week.

My List:
  1. Solaris. Stanislaw Lem
  2. The Book of God and Physics. Enrique Joven
  3. The Unit. Ninni Holmqvist
  4. The Angel's Game. Carlos Ruiz Zafon [review to come]
  5. The Friend of Madame Maigret. Georges Simenon
  6. The Lover. Marguerite Duras [review to come]
I'd like to thank Nonsuchbooks for hosting this challenge - it was certainly one of my favorites. Oh, and one more thing - isn't that one of the greatest buttons ever?


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
