World Literature Forum
In my love of books I’ve been a member of many book related communities on the web these past five years. Most of these tend to be general book forums, encompassing as much as possible. To me, this can lack focus and while it can encourage larger membership, the chances of two or more people reading – or at least having knowledge of – the same book is less than a focused subject.
Aside from the general book forums, there are communities online for thrillers; communities for sci-fi, horror, and fantasy; communities for romance; and even communities dedicated to a specific series of books or author. Nowhere online did I find an online forum for the discussion of translated literature.
So to this end, I’ve created World Literature Forum, which I hope will offer an area of the internet for people to discuss, review, recommend and publicise translated works. Fingers crossed.
