Book Blogger Hop - 7/11 - 7/17

 Question of the Week:

Do you read books in translation? What are the last 3 books in translation you read?

My Answer:

I have only read one book in translation.

And....it is one of my all-time favorite books.  

That book is:  

Shadow Of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

I loved Shadow of The Wind so much I "had" to go to Barcelona to find all the places mentioned in the book.  :) 

How do you like reading books in translation?

I try to read as many translations as possible because I want to read from all across the globe! Thanks for sharing :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Thanks for stopping, Kathy.

    It is difficult to know if they were translated or not. I didn't know Shadow of The Wind was translated until I realized his books are also in Spanish. :)

  6. I will have to look for The Shadow of The Wind. I didn't love the last translated book I read but I'm not sure if was the story or the translation that fell flat!

  9. I hope you get to read Shadow of the Wind, Billy.

    It was very good if you like Gothic writing and settings in Europe. It is set in Barcelona.

    THANKS for stopping.
