Translation, South, Non-Fiction.

 For A Beginner:  01-03
Conversationalist:  04-06
I Am Trilingual!:  07-09
I Am A Linguist:  10-12

I truly am a linguist but the great diving I do into fiction hasn’t left time for translated works.  However I’m going to strive for “Conversationalist” at the very least and may rise.  I own an ample supply of foreign works and have noticed that more English novels are translated than we might be aware.  *  Update:  I succeeded at Conversationalist!

Le Premier Nöel De La Famille LaTaupe” Russell Hoban 1969
The Alchemist”  Paul Coelho  1988
A Present For Granny”  Viola Wahlstedt  1965
The Mystery Of Saint-Salgue”  Paul Berna  1962
The Flanders Panel”  Arturo Pérez-Reverte  1990

 C’mon into the house!   1 book
Pull up a seat, stay a while!  2 books
Have a glass of tea, honey.  3 books
Y’all come back, y’hear!  4 books

I’m far from the USA’s south but own a great deal of fiction in those vivid settings and enjoy it.  I will happily commit to “Y’all come back, y’hear” and venture to suggest that this highly creative hostess raise the bar!  :)  *  Update:  I multiplied my successful reading almost six times!

Dilettante  01-5
Explorer  06-10
Seeker  11-15
Master  16-20

Mysteries and paranormal, often fictional, are my mainstays.  However non-fiction arises across my reading and I’m pleased to have a flexible place in which to allocate it.  Put me up for “Dilettante” but please re-visit and stay tuned for the feasible possibility of me ranging higher.
Update:  I succeeded with level Dilettante!  These are the four non-fiction books.

That Quail, Robert”  Margaret A. Stanger  1966
Reflections In Poetry And Pictures”  P.J. Peters  1984
Shark Lady:  True Adventures Of Eugenie Clark”  Ann McGovern  1978
Mysteries, Monsters, And Untold Secrets”  George Laycock  1978

    Good luck! I’ll be joining you for the Nonfiction challenge. I finished my first nonfiction book of 2014 this week and will put my review up tomorrow.

    • Joy, it was nice to find a new visitor to my blog! I’ve whittled away fiction these first months of 2014 but check my non-fiction list frequently. Four are brief, however I’m aligning and scheming an abundance of groups. I will enjoy comparing notes when my reviews appear. :)

  2. In response to your question about poetry and the Nonfiction challenge–I leave it up to you to decide. Some is made up and some is true. So, I wouldn’t think something by Shel Silverstein in general would be nonfiction, but something by William Carlos Williams probably would be. That doesn’t help much, does it? It’s the best I can do! :-) Good luck!

    • It’s a pleausure to hear from you for the first time Jen; especially at my blog. Welcome! I hope you enjoy the progress you see, on the page I wrote up for your own challenge trio. You answer my question just the way I hoped. I can use the local gem that I recently found. Thank you. Carolyn.
