Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

What are the chances?

In the Land of Invented Languages: Esperanto Rock Stars, Klingon Poets, Loglan Lovers, and the Mad Dreamers Who Tried to Build a Perfect Language - Arika Okrent

On the weekend, I read a book about invented languages.  When I got into work today and picked up my first book to catalog?  It was in Esperanto, arguably the most successful artificial language.  (I am working on a large H.G. Wells collection and did Czech, Danish, and Dutch language translations last week). 

 

A little coincidence to make my life a little weirder this week.
