Quiz: Which Foreign Language Book Should You Read Next?

If you’re anything like us, you probably have a stack of unread books on your nightstand or dresser that you want to read but just can’t commit to right now. You’re uninspired and would prefer to buy some exciting, new reading material. Here’s an idea to mix things up: take on a book that’s been translated from another language. Foreign language books, even ones that have been translated into English, tend to have a style and rhythm that’s vastly different from most English-language novels, and they’re often set in other countries and give you a glimpse into different cultures and ways of life.
