Mikela Only of 1001 books read not countries visited. This was a wonderful exercise as it surprised me totally that I've visited this many countries. I had figured maybe 10 or 15 so far. I used that terrific link you provided to remind me where the setting was and just kept going. I know there are books I've forgotten but figured this to be a good start for my journey and can figure out where to put Tolkien and a few other others where the setting is unknown, in outer space, under the earth or sea or just plain imaginary. Can't wait to see how it looks as the list journey progresses.
