Books Around the World Challenge

06 Sep

I’ve decided to join another challenge…  but this one is perpetual.  Good thing!  I definitely can’t add more challenges to end December 2011.  I’ve already got one counting towards this.  Only how many to go?  Good graciousness!  Oh well!  I do like a challenge.

From Book Around the World:

The world has many countries, some big and some small, and I want to find the best books about each country. The book should help us learn something ABOUT that country and not just be one written by somebody who lives there. Let’s “book around the world” and find at least one excellent book for each country in the world.
I’ll be attempting to read a book from every country…  For purposes of this challenge, I am going by the U.S. Department of State’s country listing.  There’s 195 countries according to our definition of a country. I’ll count the primary setting of fiction and nonfiction books in my listings.  This should be interesting.
