All Aboard! Welcome to Translation Station where we are sure to have some literary fun!

Offer up a translation of a book title, which we in turn have to guess.

For example, I say "One Dozen Enraged Gentleman." The next person guesses the title I am thinking, which in this case is Twelve Angry Men.

Another person may say "Great Affection During a Period of an Acute, Infectious Disease." The other person guesses the book title which is Love in the Time of Cholera

If you have any questions just ask. Remember, have fun with it.
