Why do I read books in translation?
Here is the third entry in our Reading in Translation Giveaway.
We hear a lot about what is ‘lost’ in translation. But what about what is gained? The work of a translator has a purity of attention at the level of language and the sentence that cannot be obtained by the writer.

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephane Oakes is the 2015 Young Readers Porter Square Book of the Year. (Which means it’s 20% off for the rest of the year.) Bookseller Rebecca who originally nominated The Sacred Lies for the award (and clearly has excellent taste, because she also nominated our adult winner) interviewed Stephanie Oakes.
Readers of the World! We have counted the votes on Twitter, Facebook, and in the store, and we have our 2015 Porter Square Books of the Year. Both books will be 20% off for the rest of 2016.
The adult Porter Square Book of the Year for 2015 is Uprooted by Naomi Novik!
