About meTwenty-something Irish expat, studying post-graduate history abroad and struggling with a debilitating addiction to tea.

I'm posing myself a challenge to broaden the geographical range of authors I read—I read far too many British and American authors, I've realised, and don't stretch myself as much as I should. The map below shows my progress so far; the ultimate aim is to have read at least one book from every country in the world.



55: Afghanistan, Antigua, Argentina, Australia, Barbados, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cote d'Ivoire, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Hungary, Iceland, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Liberia, Libya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Portugal, Russia, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Singapore, Somalia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sudan, Sweden, Tanzania, Turkey, United Kingdom, USA, Zimbabwe.
