June 30th – I made it! The last theme day for the Blogathon is to make a word picture of your blog and here’s mine. I like the way it orders you to “read books”.
Last year’s version is here, by way of comparison. Not surprisingly, “translation” is more prominant, given the theme of the month, but even this year it’s still nicely central, along with “translated”.
I'm a freelance literary translator from German and French to English. The title of my blog comes from Mary Schmich's description of reading: it struck home with me, and seems especially apt for translated fiction. Here are some of my musings on what I'm reading, re-reading, reading to my children, and translating.
