Reading the World

Inspired by a) wonderful books I’ve previously read from other countries and b) the Reading all around the World Club that Jean of Howling Frogs Books is hosting, I’ve decided to make my way through books–mostly novels/novellas, if I can, and contemporary if possible–from at least 50 countries around the world. I’m aiming for five years, while acknowledging that ten is more likely.

Buttong: Reading all around the World
