Foreign Text is a round robin I hosted from September through November, 2002. I got the idea for it after realizing that A) I rely too much on quotes and song lyrics in my AB layouts, and B) I have an ever-growing collection of books in foreign languages that I really have to start using. The Foreign Text round robin required all players to choose a book written entirely in a language other than English, and to work for the most part without using English words. Most players opted to have works of many languages and many cultures done in their books, regardless of the original language of the book they chose.
