I am a linguist, teacher and translator, speaking German, French and Spanish. My mother tongue is English and I and love reading in English, but also in the languages I speak. I enjoy reading books in the original, but also in translation, and enjoy the challenge of  literary translation myself.  I read with others in book groups, including a German book group, but also books which I come across myself, through reviews or browsing in charity shops, and which somehow pique my interest. In this blog I write about books which I’ve enjoyed- some contemporary and some older which I’ve picked up again for all the reasons we go back to things.

I live in the Peak District and  love walking.
