Amazon offers nine free works in translation (e-book format) until World Book Day Reply

World Book Day is April 23rd. To celebrate, Amazon is offering a selection of award-winning works from around the world, all of which have been translated to English, for free for Kindle. You can grab them between now and April 24th at https://www.amazon.com/article/read-the-world

(there may be geographical or other limits on who can get these books for free– apparently they are free to US-based customers, and discounted in other regions)

Among the books, I spotted The Light of the Fireflies, by Paul Pen and translated by ProZ.com member Simon Bruni.

The book cover of The Light of the Fireflies by Paul Pen. Translated by Simon Bruni. The cover shows a firefly alit on a concrete wall, its blue paint cracked and peeling away.
