Rules I hold myself to:
- the same book may appear in multiple challenges
- the same book can only appear once in each challenge
- author origin will count towards "visiting" a country but if an author didn't grow up in said country the author might be replaced later. Also " Around The World" challenge started in 2015.

Yes I started with the PopSugar challenge last year and I just love how it gets me reading books I wouldn't normally reach for.
