Duo centum librorum in aliena lingua.

May 17, 2012

Today marks a milestone in the total number of foreign language books we have in stock. The addition of Zoé et Théo and Mes amis: Les Chats has brought the figure to a round 200.

The most ‘international’ of these is a booklet published in 2011 on behalf of the European Union. Its title is “United in Diversity” printed in no less than 22 different languages, which definitely makes it a strong candidate for the book with the longest title ever!

Whilst almost half of these books are in French (93, to be precise), the remainder is formed of titles in such diverse languages as Arabic, Bengali, Catalan, Hindi, Japanese, Russian, Somali, Welsh, and even Latin.

In fact, our shelves carry books in over 25 different languages, and the full list can be viewed in our dedicated Foreign Language section.

Beatus pasco! Happy browsing!
