Perpetual Reading Projects

Most of my reading these days is connected to volumes I am editing, including currently the Routledge Handbook of Translation and Activism.

Over the years, I have created working bibliographies on a range of topics I have researched on Worldcat. A great and under-utilized resource!

I have highlighted some of the texts I turn to for pleasure reading on Goodreads.
