World Reading Challenge


I created the World Reading Challenge to diversify my book selections and reading habits two years ago. Every week since, I’ve read a book reflecting a different country (or territory) to explore the world through literature. Below you’ll find lists of the 52 books I’m reading in this ambitious challenge each year. The book selections are related to the countries and regions in a number of ways – are set there, have characters from there, reflect the local culture or are by notable authors from there. I hope you’ll find something here to inspire your reading or travels too!
