message 21: by Celia (new)

Celia Buell (celiareadsbooks) | 543 comments How much of the book has to take place in that country for it to count? Like if a book has some chapters set in England, but most in the US, does it still count?

Then I 'd say that book wouldn't work for a book set in England
