Books from 110 Countries

Although the blog’s been quiet, I have been reading. Here are numbers 101 to 110:

101 Mauritius The Last Brother Nathacha Appanah
102 Cameroon Houseboy Ferdinand Oyono
103 The Gambia Reading the Ceiling Dayo Forster
104 Iraq The Marsh Arabs Wilfred Thesiger
105 Cape Verde The Last Will and Testament of Senhor da Silva Araujo Germano Almeida
106 Denmark The Year of Living Danishly Helen Russell
107 Latvia With Dance Shoes in Siberian Snows Sandra Kalniete
108 Tanzania Desertion Abdulrazak Gurnah
109 Austria The Tobacconist Robert Seethaler
110 Marshall Islands Surviving Paradise Peter Rudiak-Gould

Amazingly, I didn’t have my book-from-every-country reading organized into a spreadsheet before now. Now that I’ve got a spreadsheet, I can graph my progress:

ReadingI’m kind of impressed at the steadiness of my progress over time!

I need to read 20.5 books per year for this project for the next four years to finish the project in 10 years. That’s a little higher than my average pace so far, but not by much. I can do this!



  1. Good progress I m at 105 countries I have a few on tbr to come at some point

    • Thanks! Your reading is a great source of inspiration!

  2. Bravo! That spreadsheet is equal parts inspiring + intimidating…

    • Thanks! It’s also a reminder of how shockingly quickly time goes by. It’s really been 6 years since I started doing this?
