Book around the World

**This list will now be updated at the Book Around the World Reading Challenge page**

 

Source: Bonnie Jacobs at Book Around the World

Aim: To read a book set in each country of the world. The book may or may not be written by an author native to that country, but must convey something about the culture and/or history of the country.

I originally started this challenging in 2009, but I am beginning afresh in 2014. My list of countries (divided into continents) comes from an alphabetical list on WorldAtlas.com accessed in Jan 2014. I will include links to any reviews I have written here at Reading Upside Down (RUD) or Kids’ Book Review (KBR)

Look out world, here I come!
