Bethany | 8 comments I am going to read 10 initial countries. Depending on the countries I get because it isn't always possible I am going to try and read majority fiction written by women, translated fiction preferred.

Bethany | 8 comments The 10 countries I have received are:
🌎Sri Lanka
🌎Congo (DRC)
🌎Central African Republic

I'm pretty excited with the countries I have been given. 1- because I have never read books from any of these countries before and 2- there aren't any standard common English language countries on this list e.g. USA, England, Australia. Hopefully I can find a book written by a women from each of these countries ... time to start researching 🗺🌎📚

Bethany | 8 comments I'm quite pleased because after a day of hunting I have found 8/10 countries with books written by women to read.

My two problem countries are:
🌎The Central African Republic- the book I have selected is a free ebook which is great, but written by a man.
🌎Liechtenstein- so few books translated into english from this country! There are two authors that won the EU literature prize but neither are translated 😔
