Reading the World 2006


Would someone please help me understand how I missed this? And not just this year but last year also! The mind boggles…

From their website -> Reading the World 2006 is an exciting collaboration between booksellers and publishers to help bring international voices from around the world.

So even though it’s already part way through this year’s event, I’m going to try and do my part. Interestingly enough, I’m already reading The Ministry of Pain by Dubravka Ugresic (Translation by Michael Henry Heim), published by Ecco for review at Curled Up with a Good Book. I’ll have to see what other international authors I can read yet this month.

Thanks to Chekhov’s Mistress for promoting this important concept.

    And thanks to you, Janelle, for passing the info. on to the rest of us. I will have to see what best I can do to participate. I read “White on Black” by Ruben Gallego recently and I have been wanting to read “Suite Française” by Irène Némirovsky for a w hile now, so this seems like the perfect occasion!

    You’re welcome! Once I get through the stack on my desk that need reviewing, Suite Francaise is going to be at the top of my pile.

    I remember this happening last year, but totally forgot about it this year. Thanks for the link. I am also particularly interested in the book Suite Francaise. It appears none of my local libraries are getting it, so I may have to break down and buy a copy.

    How did I miss it? Thanks for the link, Jan! I meant to tell you earlier but got sidetracked on the site.

    You’re welcome Carrie. I’m not sure how I missed it but I’m having fun exploring the site and discovering new authors. Glad you’re finding it interesting.
