Books in Translation Reading Challenge 2021

OK, I've decided to sign up for a few more reading challenges. (Somebody please stop me now!) I really shouldn't be looking for challenges when I haven't even finished one book during this first week of the new year. I think all the enforced hibernation must have addled my brain. Or maybe it's just the opportunity to make a few more lists of possible books to read — one of my favorite activities. 

Anyway, this one should be fun....

Jen at Introverted Reader is hosting her Books in Translation Reading Challenge again in 2021, and it's a very attractive challenge if (like me) you don't like a lot of complicated rules. The main goal is just " a book that’s been translated from any language into the language of your choosing." 

I figure I should be able to read at least one or two translations this year, so I'm signing up at the "Beginner" level (1-3 books), and (as usual) I'll be hoping to do a little better than that. I don't have a set list of books I'm thinking about reading, so I'll just see what develops. During the year I'll be tracking my progress over on my challenge blog (HERE).


  1. I don't care to do reading challenges, I have too much fun picking out my choice of books. I am reading a book in translation this week, have you heard of A Man by Keiichiro Hirano? I have read half of it and liking it. Enjoy your challenges.

  2. Thanks for signing up for my challenge! I like to keep things nice and easy. One translated book seems like something most of us can accomplish! Good luck!


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.
