I haven't read as much world lit this year, but I did finally read about some new countries (Taiwan and Haiti). I didn't mark my U.S. books this year, but I did make an individual map for my review of Born to Be.
Countries I Wish To Read More Of
Any country in South America- I grimace every time I see all that blank area on my book map there. I've been trying to gather more South American lit, but I haven't yet stumbled onto any more than The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende.
Australia- It's ridiculous that I haven't finished any of my books that are set there yet, but it appears to be the case. Maybe during this readathon?
Any country on the continent of Africa- I have 'traveled' there once this year (by book, of course) but I plan to find something more rave-worthy than my last read there...
I could also benefit from some more Canadian lit. I read Margaret Atwood, but otherwise... I don't read a lot of Canadian lit. That needs to change.
If you have suggestions for my 'want to read' countries, please list them below. Then hopefully during the next month of Kindle Daily Deals/thrift store shopping, I'll be able to find them.
