Reading World Literature

Thanks to Sarah at Loose Baggy Monster for pointing me in the direction of a wonderful site which promotes reading works in translation: Reading The World. I’ve added this site to my sidebar under “favorites” so readers of my blog can easily find this link. This site is currently promoting some very exciting books. They say:

These forty books represent some of the most exciting literature being written outside the United States. From Lithuania to Iraq, from Norway to Chile, the writers offer an excellent introduction to a variety of cultures and ideas found outside our borders—ideas and cultures that we must have access to in order to understand our world.

They also have links to some interesting International LitBlogs.

I’ve started browsing – and I can see this will add to my reading list very quickly!
