Well last year there was a similar topic I highlight Rob of robaroundbooks and Simon of inside books two bloggers that made me want to start blogging over two years ago .So this year I ll highlight two bloggers that I enjoy –

Parrish lantern – Gary of Parrish lantern is like me a fan of all things in  translation he tends to review a lot of german and Japanese books ,he is my most regular commentor and I have over last few months built a bond with him on twitter ,oh and he likes whiskey real ale and poetry which makes him a real star in my eyes ,so why not go over and check him out                                                                                                                                       The second blogger I want to mention is Richard of  caravana de recuerdos – Richard is a thoughtful blogger who’s post have great depth and often bi lingual as he use his second language spanish to cover his books ,as you may imagine he tends towards all thing spanish and latin american which are two of my favourite area’s to read from .so if you like the sound of richard go check him out .

    It is lovely to see Parrish Lantern getting so much recognition today! I love his blog and have got some especially good Japanese recommendations from his site. Thanks for highlighting him.

    I don’t follow Richard at the moment. No idea why – he sounds great. *heads off to look*

    It’s great that you give the male part of the community some extra mention. There aren’t that many of you but the quality of your blog posts is usually very high. Parrish I know of course, I’ll check out Richard.

    Thanks so much for the kind words, Stu! It’s always nice to be appreciated by a fellow international fiction fan, but it’s a double honor to be singled out by you, keeper of one of my own favorite book blogs, and to be mentioned alongside the Bolaño-loving likes of The Parrish Lantern, another blog I’m also fond of. Cheers, mate!
