My Literary Book Giveaway

While some malign the emergence of ebooks (not me!), it has spawned some wonderful niche digital-only publishers that specialize in translated fiction. Without publishers such as these, English audiences would not have access to the wealth of literary talent around the globe.

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing Family Heirlooms by Zulmira Ribeiro Tavares (Frisch & Co) and Dead Stars by Alvaro Bisama (Ox and Pigeon).

    L O V E translated fiction and how could we not be interested in a Brazilian novella! Not sure if I can read an epub, but willing to try and definitely in for this one. I have a work of translated fiction on offer in my giveaway as well, so do make sure you enter.:)

      Since they’re both novellas practically speaking they should be good for those not used to reading ebooks to try. Yes, I love the adventure of reading translated fiction – off to check out your giveaway right now.

      That’s right. While I understand that ebooks aren’t for everyone, given you don’t even need a dedicated ereader anymore with all the different free reading apps available for tablets/smart phones the format is becoming so much more accessible.
