  1. I've completed the challenge! (linguist level)
    definitely hoping to read at least one more book in translation, maybe more.
    Note that I started 6 of the books in 2013-2015 😀 And I still have lots of translated books in progress!

  2. How do you feel about partially read books? I'm not fluent in Croatian and I found something that looked interesting on bookdepository, only to realize it's a book about "intelligent design", by that Raël guy… it looked like sci-fi haha.
    I read some parts (in total around 50 pages) out of curiosity and because I was annoyed that I had accidentally bought such a book (it can be downloaded as a free PDF too). But this kinda shows what kind of adventures you can have with books in translation, right? 😀

I love to hear from you! Please contact me (menu bar, above) if you're having trouble commenting.
