Try and read books that take place in as many countries as possible. As you do, list the country and then the title of the book. Please list the countries alphabetically. And, only 1 book per country.

Hey Colleen, just so you know Bavaria is a part of Germany.

Colleen | 17 comments I had just copied and pasted it from a note I had to myself (I never remember where they took place after I finish reading) and didn't pay any attention. Thank you Heather.

No problem. I've been forgetting to look for these so I started looking through your list to see if there was any inspiration for me.

I need to read Uncommon Criminals. It's been on my shelf since Borders closed. If you've read Angels and Demons then you have one for Vatican City. I just remembered that one.

How have I not gotten Spain yet?

message 9: by Colleen (new)

Colleen | 17 comments You have done too good a job on Delirity. I usually update my challenges here when I've finished the ones there but you've kept us busy over there. I'll need to find time to update these

I finally got to add Belgium and Tanzania. I feel like I've hit a wall and haven't gotten any new ones in a while.

message 12: by Colleen (new)

Colleen | 17 comments I've added a couple more on Delirity. I need to make sure this one is up to date too. I'll hit several book in a row that are in unique places then nothing for a while.
