12 years Of winstonsdad Happy Anniversary

Well, it has flown but here are some stats I have now written over a million words, posted 1960 posts, read and reviewed 1100 books, from over 110 countries. Sadly I lost my Winston of the title a number of years ago my faithful dog. I have been to London a number of times via things to do with the blog twice spoken about my blog and the whole world literature boom. I started a hashtag that has run for 11 years which is something I feel #translationthurs has been on a book cover and still runs every week as a real guide to all the translated books over the last 11 years. I have now settled as a blogger I love it as a hobby and love the discovery of new books the ever-expanding selection of books in translation has been the most amazing thing I have seen since the blog has started the growth in small presses and the ever-growing list of first from around the world. I still run Spanish lit month another long-running blog event and have done most of the shadow IFFP and Booker international juries which I started many years ago. But there are always new challenges out there new fences to be jumped and new books to read. I most of all have enjoyed connecting in person and virtually with people around the world showing the world is a small place. Let’s see where the next dozen years take winstonsdad !!
