I got the idea for this challenge here, at Downunder's Reading Challenges blog. The idea is to read books from as many different countries as possible, and it is a perpetual challenge, so there's no time limit. I plan on listing the books I've already read that take place in other countries as well. The list of countries below was taken from WorldAtlas.com.
Countries Listed By
Continent NOTE: Only countries recognized (as such) by the United Nations are listed, not dependencies and/or territories. Regarding England, Scotland and Wales, though considered individual countries, they are all a part of the United Kingdom (UK), a European country, and therefore included within the United Kingdom on the list below.
