On Saturday on the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize Readers Day I had the idea to start a reading group on Goodreads to support translated books and yesterday I just put my idea and plan to action. For now I have decided to have two monthly group reads. 1 will be the group read for the International Literature Reading Group at the Norfolk and Norwich Millenium Library and the other will go along the long list of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2013. I have chosen the jury’s winner for next months read (The Detour by Gerbrand Bakker translated by David Colmer) and for July the readers choice winner (Trieste by Dasa Drndic translated by Ellen Elias-Bursac). June’s International Literature Reading Group’s read is Beside the Sea by Veronique Olmi translated by Adriana Hunter.
