#translationthurs -a twitter day for the world

I like people on twitter to try to suggest a translated book on Thurs every week ,a bit like #fridayreads ,but one day to highlight the latest books out ,old favourites or even a translator you enjoy reading .Hopefully getting everyone to maybe choose one more book to read would be great ! As ever I just want highlight books from around the world for everyone the more we read the more that will get translated ! so this thursday tomorrow please suggest one book for #translationthurs .

    Hi, Stu, stumbled on you in the twittersphere, and I really like this idea! I’ll add a book tomorrow.
    It so happens we’re setting up a new not-for-private-profit publisher for international contemporary fiction – and a big thing we want to do is also get debate going around some highly recommended and untranslated books. We’ll have a whole bunch of tipped authors and extracts in English going up on our website soon – and readers’ groups on goodreads’ online forums.
    Be great to be in touch, Stu, and here what you and others think should be published!
