World Reading Challenge: Books Around The Globe 2018 #dolistsorbooks
World Reading Challenge, Books Around The GlobeI love that books can transport us; even without leaving home. In my ideal world, I’d read a different book every week of the year. Each one would be set in a different country and I’d travel the globe through world literature. Though this is a rather ambitious reading goal, I wanted to capture what this world reading challenge would look like – and give it a shot regardless! After endless research, I created the following world reading challenge. It includes 52 titles from around the globe – along with alternatives for those books you might have already read. The selection of countries is random, though I’ve tried to balance them across continents. The book selections are related to the countries in a number of ways – are set there, have characters from there, reflect the local culture or are by notable authors from there. The books were also chosen based on their overall popularity, awards, reviews and ratings; with a good mix of classics and modern literature to boot. Hopefully you find something here to inspire your next read, or even consider taking on the world reading challenge yourself. Why not read your way around the globe this year?
