I’m happy to report that we are now twice as huge in Sweden. Lisa Jannerling, author of the blog En Boknörds Bekännelser (A Booknerd’s Confession), linked to my interview with Rob Sheffield in a post that (in part) decries the horrible Swedish translation of his book Love is a Mix Tape. While you’re there, check out her Lankär recommendations. BGB is one of two recommended English language book sites. The other is The Guardian. Cool.
For my part, I’ve become a regular visitor of Bokhora, and I’ll be checking out En Boknörds Bekännelser. I don’t understand Swedish, but I think it’s fascinanting to check out what is of interest to like-minded people in another country who speak another language and have their own culture. It’s amazing how much meaning can be transferred despite the language barrier.
