Books Around the World Challenge



This new Challenge does not have any start or ending dates on it so I'm going to enter this one. The list of books has not yet been finalised, so this challenge can wait until everythings done, and I am back from the hospital.

I would like to try and read 2 books from or about each of the below regions or continents within one year, and I will make it a rule to myself, that none of these books are crossovers from another challenge. That's a total of 26 books - and easily doable within 12 months.

North America
Central America
Caribbean
South America
Europe
Africa
Middle East
Central Asia
Asia
Southeast Asia
Australia
Oceania
Antarctica

Thanks for suggesting a book, Historia, and for spreading the word on your blog.

Well, I've been trying to do something similar, "Around the World in 52 Books," but this is a nice approach as well -- let me know if you find any books by authors from Antarctica... that would be so cool.

Just to say best wishes as you go into hospital and great to hear that you are going to move on to the around the world challenge. I like no time limit too!

Authors from antarctica - one I want to read is that women who diagnosed herself with cancer I think, and then operated on herself. Thats a real book from the Antarctica. LOL

When you find the title of the book about that doctor from Antarctica, be sure to share the title with all of us at Book around the World. Thanks.
