World of Literature



World of Literature Project 50 countries. 5 years 

This project is hosted by Booker Talk and is about broadening our reading horizons.

Goal:
Read books by authors from 50 different countries of the world within five years.
Though it is going to be different to limit the full country list to only 50, I need to find so way to do so: either I should go through the continents or just check what books I have available and get along with that.

 The Rules:

  • Books set in a particular country will not count towards this challenge. The book has to be written by an indigenous author.
  • Authors have to have been born or lived in the particular country to count but could be living elsewhere
  • Clock starts Jan 1, 2017. Finishes Dec 31, 2019

 So after some thinking I could not find any reasonable way to limit the countries to 50 only, and I decided to go from book to book. In the beginning, I take the easy way and hope it will not be considered as cheating: I will read books and see what countries the author from and add them to the list.  

Japan - Inoue, Yasushi - Lou-lan
UK - Hawkins, Paula - The Girl on the Train
US - Coben, Harlan - Stay Close 

RU - Nabokov, Vladimir - The Eye  
CA - Atwood, Margaret - The Handmaid's Tale
NL -  Faber, Michel - Under The Skin
RS - Kiš, Danilo - A Tomb for Boris Davidovic
