So next year (and beyond becuase I know this is going to take awhile) I am going to start down through all the countries and try and read a book from each. I reached out to various online reading groups and got so many suggestions that I was off to a great start. Then I started my online research, and I think I have a starting list.
As my lists always do - I am sure this will ebb and flow as the challenge goes on. I am still missing a few countries where I just couldn't put my finger on a book that sounded like a good fit. My plan - if it goes well and the book is outstanding- is to buy the book when I finish reading it and put it on my shelf. I don't buy many books, but I would love a World bookcase.
So here is the list. I am always open to suggestions, so feel free to make them. If you read a book from a country that you absolutely think I should not miss, then tell me about it in the comments. And if you know of a book for my empty country slots, I want to hear those too.
If you click on the book name, it will take you to the Amazon page where you can see who the author is and read a synopsis.
