The World Bookshelf is home to over 100 brilliant books from around the globe which English PEN has supported through its Writers in Translation programme. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the programme we asked YOU, the reading public, to vote for your favourite World Bookshelf book. Each month a pair of lucky voters won a set of five PEN-supported books - congratulations and thanks to all who took part. After five nail-biting months of voting, here is the final leader board.
