I think this is one of the smallest amount of books I’ve read since I started keeping track.

The books were:

  • 2 nonfiction
  •  0 audio books because I started from the beginning of The West Wing Weekly podcast and I’m only on season 4 right now.  Not listening to audiobooks has really dropped my monthly book totals
  • Set in Brazil,  England, Bangladesh, Japan, Australia, made up places, and the U.S.

The authors were:

  • 5 unique white women, 1 Brazilian woman, 1 Indian woman, 1 Filipino woman, 1 Bangladeshi man, 1 Japanese man, and 1 white man

Reading All Around the World challenge from Howling Frog Books

  • Read a nonfiction book about the country – or
  • Read fiction written by a native of the country or someone living for a long time in the country.

I did it!  Bangladesh!  I actually was reading a book that would count for Bangladesh but I lost it.  This is a whole other book for Bangladesh because I still haven’t found the first one.

  1. Your description of the challenge to read a book by a native of a country or at least someone who knows it well is a wise suggestion. I’ve been looking for books about France and French food by French people. Many of the books for this month’s “Paris in July” are by American or English authors, and that’s ok but I keep hoping for a French point of view.
