Diane  | 12949 comments In February, we will be reading a book set in Europe for our world book, and a book set in New England for our U.S. state book. Please post your nominations on this thread. Remember, books can be of any genre but must be at least 100 pages long and set predominantly in a specified country or state. It is not a requirement that the author of the book be a native or resident of the country chosen.

There are several countries that are considered to be both part of Asia and Europe. For the purposes of the challenge, we will use only those countries listed under the topic "Books Set in Europe".

New England states include the following: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Diane  | 12949 comments I have added a few to Maine, but I still have a lot more to put in as a lot of books are set there.

Connie G (connie_g) | 863 comments Lahni, I've got Midwives on my TBR list too.

I read The Tiger's Wife, and enjoyed it. There's a lot of magical realism in it which made it fun to discuss in a group at the library.

Dee (austhokie) | 437 comments i've not read midwives - but there is a movie of it starring sissy spacek - I think it was a made-for-tv one...I just read his new one for New Hampshire...he is one fucked up writer (in a good way)
