15.1 - Dig It
The Men's World Volleyball Championship takes place September 9 - 30. The countries in Pools A-D will compete with each other during Round 1 of the competition. Read TWO books, each set at least 50% in two different countries that are in the SAME pool. For example, you may choose to read one book set in Argentina and one in Japan (Pool A) or you may choose a book set in Brazil and one set in China (Pool B). A list of pools is provided in post 2 of the Help Thread.
Required: State the countries used when posting. If the setting is not obvious from the book's GRs main page, provide a link to reference for verification.

Christine | 767 comments Meditations by Marcus Aurelius lists its setting as "The Roman Empire". Would this be acceptable to equate to Italy in Pool A for this task? Thanks!

Yes, that works for Italy.

Joanne (joabroda1) | 1072 comments WouldBatavia's Graveyard: The True Story of the Mad Heretic Who Led History's Bloodiest Mutiny work as Austrialia-the ship ran aground off the coast of Australia

The mutiny might have succeeded, but in the dark morning hours of June 3, 1629, the Batavia smashed through a coral reef and ran aground on a small chain of islands near Australia.

Yes, that works. The island chain is now considered an Australian territory.

Welcome! Though keep in mind that her rules included author nationalities, not just settings. But still, it's much better than other lists I've found.

not sure what you mean by "her rules included author nationalities" - this task is restricted to setting. This list could be very helpful for that.
