2013 Books in Translation Reading Challenge!

The 2013 Books in Translation Reading Challenge is hosted by Jen @ The Introverted Reader.

When I saw this challenge on a fellow blogger's post, I knew I had to join.

English isn't my first language, but most of the books I read are in English, mainly because they don't translate them & publish them here right away, so I don't want to wait ;) and sometimes the translations are just awful, and I get irritated. But, I do buy & read them, although mostly I buy them & they just sit on my bookshelf unread, so this challenge is perfect to remind me to read them ;)

So, for this challenge, I'll read mostly books that have been translated to Macedonian language, but I'll probably read a few that have been translated to Serbian or Croatian, so this challenge should be a piece of cake for me ;)

There are 4 levels & I decided for the Linguist level - to read 10-12 books.

I'll just list the books below as I read them.

  2. I haven't signed up for this challenge[i'm horrible at them!] but I HAD to click on the button and see what it was all about because I LOVE The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Seriously, one of my favorite books of ALL ALL ALL time. Who can't love a book about a mysterious book shop and a book! I seriously could gush on forever.. but I won't :D I wish you good luck in the challenge! I wish I could read and speak in a foreign language but alas, I cannot. Maybe someday! :)
