I'm excited about the concept. I was already looking over my own books about a week ago and thought of something similar. I'm going to aim for one book set in each country.

Not sure if links will work in these forums but I started a map for myself (things I've already read) here:

Great idea with the Google map. I have set up an excel file with the countries in the first column and five columns after that for each of the books. It has been fun going through my library and see what books fit where. It is also interesting to come across books that I have read but cannot remember where they were set!
