Books from 120 countries

I have to admit, I’m writing this update rather last minute, since I’m currently about to start my 130th book. So I thought I had better hurry up and not be two summary posts behind!

Here are books 111-120:

111 Sweden A Man Called Ove Frederik Bachmann
112 Bolivia Affections Rodigo Hasbrun
113 Ethiopia Beneath the Lion’s Gaze Maaza Mengiste
114 Singapore The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye Sonny Liew
115 Guatemala Silence on the Mountain Daniel Wilkinson
116 Bosnia and Herzegovina How the Soldier Repairs the Gramophone Sasa Stanistic
117 Uzbekistan The Railway Hamid Ismailov
118 Namibia The Purple Violet of Oshaantu Neshani Andreas
119 Samoa Leaves of the Banyan Tree Albert Wendt
120 Comoros A Fish Caught in Time Samantha Weinberg


I made a map of my progress to see what is left:

A lot of the countries I have left are too small to see on this map! It was interesting to see that there are some geographical gaps in the map- central Africa and northern South America. I’ll be working to fill in some of those regions.




  1. Congratulations a nice total to reach

    • Thanks! I’m sticking at it!

  2. To be fair, I think your South America gap is called Brazil

    • 🙂 By land area it certainly rounds off to Brazil! But it does also include Venezuela, Peru, Guyana, Suriname, and Paraguay. (Also French Guiana, which will presumably get filled in when I add in my book for France.)
