I spend so much time in the 19th and early 20th centuries (oh for a time machine that would take me to the Chicago of 1893, late spring or early summer and to the World’s Fair!), that when I saw this challenge I thought it would be a good way to read more contemporary books.
Hosted by Jean of Howling Frog Books, the gist of the challenge is either to read a book from all 200 countries of the world or from a smaller list of countries of your choice. This is not a challenge to be done in a year and I will take my time, probably one book a month for several years. For more information and to sign up go here.
I am not going to make a list in advance and the minimum is 50. Let’s see how I do!
