As a reminder, I am aiming to read a book from or set in each country the Department of State recognizes, which is 195 countries!
I had a really good month in August! I'm noticing that I have a lot of harder countries on my list now and I think it may be getting harder to find books that fit the bill. It is amazing to me how difficult it is to find books for so many of these countries in translation. I'm also finding that children's and YA literature is often more diverse than adult literature.
I read books from this many countries in July:
I have read 72 books for this challenge so far.
Take a look at my list! What else should I be reading?
