Repetitive, but: nice to meet you! :) I love these Friday Follows; it gives us a chance to get to know a little bit about BL'ers. I too am a fan of vintage paperbacks (mysteries) and prefer to find the vintage copies over buying brand new, if I can.

Great shelfies - I don't think I've met anyone until now that sorts by color and it looks awesome!

Thanks, Murder by Death. Yes, vintage paperbacks have more personality ;)
I re-organized my shelves just recently. They're still somewhat chaotic, but not as chaotic as they used to be.
"giving my empathy-muscle some work-out" -- oh, I love that description. And I'm right there with you when it comes to reading in the original.

Nice to learn a bit more about you, Juniper!

Thanks for your kind words.
Yeah, so many things can be lost in translation - although I value translators' efforts and have read some really good ones. In rare cases, the translation even works better for me (Philip K. Dick for example).
Really? Oh, wow, interesting. And you're right, of course -- good translators are incredibly important, just *because* translation is always interpretation.
