Tanya (mom's small victories) (momssmallvictories) | 33 comments Is there an easy way to find the country in which a book is set? Some book details show the US state/country but I'd like to search Goodreads based on a country that I am interested in. I see that the country recommendation threads are from 2011, it doesn't seem people are updating those threads anymore. Just wondering. glad to have joined the group.

Angie Hilbert (rnherbals) Nancy Pearl's book *Book Lust to go* is a nice catalogue of literature organized by country. But be careful. It's easy for your reading list to grow pretty fast after flipping through it.

Hi guys. It is a tricky question. If you look in our resource thread here you will be able to find useful resources and links to getting books easier. Always good to know. One thread you should definitely check out is this one . Jenny particularly has some handy hints for checking goodreads for places, but there are heaps of other helpful links in there too.

Also, Jenny again (she works so hard!) spent an obscene amount of time putting our selections into a Master list. Check it out It's sorted by country so you can go by "I always wanted to read a book set in Panama" or "I have too many books in Asia but not enough in Africa, what's set in Kenya?".

Good luck! Look forward to the lists (so I can snaffle good looking reads)

P.S. As the group was set up in 2011, a lot of the list building threads are from then. All the links and the lists are still very helpful though, even if they were posted a year ago.

Also, trawl peoples lists! That's what we all do ;)

Val There is also this group:

I only discovered it by accident. One of its members had reviewed a couple of books I read and hardly anyone else had. I have already plundered his bookshelves, but intend to do the same for the group.
