Wellcome to the list, Anna-Leena! Nice to have another Finn here.

Good news! Year of the Griffin is coming out in Finnish this year. I've
yet to read The Dark Lord of Derkholm in Finnish although I gave it to my
fiance last Christmas. I think I'm too used to reading them (and other
books) in the original language, that I keep watching the translation and
don't immerse in the story. But it would be so much easier to convert
others to dwj-books if they were translated.

I've found quite a lot of them in English in libraries. Of course now I've
managed to buy (here and abroad) most of them. I just got a bunch of
dwj-books on Monday I've been waiting for months to order (not having any
money to spare): Wild Robert, Stopping for a Spell, Wilkin's Tooth, The
Spellcoats and The Crown of Dalemark. :) So for the moment life is blissful!
