I read about Friday Finds on http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/ and want to take part in sharing a book that I've "found."
Please leave comments here on a book you are excited to be reading or plan to read so I can get more ideas for my TBR list :) I am delighted to begin reading "Swann's Way", which is volume 1 of Marcel Proust's "In Search of Lost Time", which I recall being translated as "Remembrance of Things Past." Thus far, the words are formed and flow like quicksilver, or a mountain stream. They are dream like, and are the thoughts of a young boy.
I bought the translation by C.K. Scott Moncrieff, although many people recommend the newer translation by Lydia Davis. When I looked on Amazon I saw translations and thesaurus editions in Chinese, Turkish, Swahili, Hindi, Afrikaans, Catalan, Thai and more. Wow, that is an honor for any book! I would love to see my own book published in other languages.
"Thank you to me" for buying this book at a local bookstore. When we post reviews on our blogs we are 'sposed to say from whence the book came.
