silly_soup | 8 comments I'm new to challenges and thought I would start with the one with the least constraints (i.e. deadlines) since I am a graduate student and I do not get as much reading for pleasure in as I would like. I've always enjoyed reading literature that takes place in countries around the world, that I've never been to, or with a culture with which I am not familiar. I love the ATW Challenge as a way to keep track of the countries I visit through reading :).

I'm going to use this post as my own master post to keep track of all countries, plus I'll make a new post for each country visited as I complete my reads as per the challenge rules.
