I have seen many fellow bloggers do this and I think its a great idea to expand my reading horizons. As a project for the year 2009-10 I plan to read a book from each country in the world. Some of the ground rules
1. It can be a translation or be written in English by an author from the country in question
2. The book plot has to be based in the country
3. If I have read foreign authors in the last 5 years ( and not earlier) it is okay to count them as a part of the project. ( no..this is not cheating..after all I have read them, havent I?!)
4. The book can be fiction or non-fiction
The total number of countries in the world – 194 ! Well happy reading to me!
