Book Bulletin: books in other languages

bokati%e2%88%82indi-5-sofaWe are marking the start of the crowdfunding phase of the Book Bulletin campaign – to raise money for next year’s Jolabokaflod UK events and marketing – by adding two new features to the section. Here is the first of these new features.

Books in other languages

Inspired by the book recommendations sent to us by digital marketer and blogger, Dovilė Malachauskaitė (born in Vilnius, Lithuania, but living in London), we realised it would be great to include books not written in English in the Book Bulletin.

Our new Books in other languages section features books not yet translated into English that are the favourite reads of some of our contributors. Dovilé’s choices are published in French and Polish respectively, so we have added pages for these languages, with the potential to add books in any language that are available in the UK and/or the USA via Amazon.

Please send us your recommendations, irrespective of the language in which they are published, and we shall add them to the new section on all occasions when an English translation is not available.

Last few hours of free…

The Futurebook Conference organised by The Bookseller magazine marks the close of the free phase for book recommendations for the Book Bulletin catalogue. Entries for the books you love or wish to promote are free until midnight on 2 December 2016.

Thank you to everyone who has taken part so far. You have helped to get the catalogue off to a rapid start out of the blocks.

bokati%e2%88%82indi-1-cover… and the start of the crowdfunding campaign

From just after the stroke of midnight, the Book Bulletin project becomes a rewards-based crowdfunding campaign at CrowdPatch, to help fund events and promotion for Jolabokaflod UK in 2017. The 2016 campaign has been fully funded as an act of philanthropy by Christopher Norris, Founder and Curator of the Jolabokaflod Book Campaign.

Please contribute as generously as you can to promote books and your own personal and professional interests.
