August is Women in Translation Month! For me, August always means it's time for reading #WIT. This is a great initiative started by Meytal Radzinski at Biblibio in 2014, to highlight the fact that only about 30% of the small number of books translated into English are by women. This year she has created a dedicated website for the project, WomenInTranslation.org. Go there to find all the details, reviews, booklists, stats and everything else you've ever wanted to know about this project. It's really fantastic!
And if you like this kind of thing, there is also a reading bingo card for WIT 2021!
I absolutely love this month. It's the most reading fun I have all year. I've been participating since 2015 when I first found about this challenge, and you can find all my reviews of the Women in Translation I've read by clicking on the #WIT tag on any post.
