Read the World
I started a Taste the World challenge on my food blog and I love it. It made me try recipes I haven’t heard about. So, I’ve decided to do a Read the World challenge too. I will read at least a book from every part of the world. I will link to the books I am reading, but I will include only a few from the countries I usually read from, such as UK or US.
To link a book to a country its author needs to be born there. I think this is the easiest way to approach the challenge. I do not have a time-frame and I will update this post monthly. I grouped some countries together to make it easier. The books will be both fiction and non-fiction.
I marked the countries already read. It was quite interesting to see that I read from so many countries without even trying. I’ve included only books read in the last 3 years. So far my list includes authors from 19 countries.
