Around the World: A to Z January 2015

Welcome to the brand new challenge Around the World: A to Z 2015. It is a challenge that will take you around the world, learning about the writers from various countries. Please take a moment reading the general rules, and come along.

If you’re a Polish reader, please join us at Różne Czytanie blog: od A do Z.

January 2015

The rules are simple, choose at least 1 country, and 1 book by a writer from that country. These countries are:

  • Angola;
  • Aotearoa (New Zealand);
  • Azərbaycan (Azerbaijan);
  • България (Bulgaria);
  • भारत – Bharat (India);
  • Bolivia (Bolivia);
  • Canada;
  • Chile;
  • Црна Гора (Montenegro).

Since it’s hard to imagine what was exactly published all over the world, I’ll give you examples of some writers.

  • Jose Eduardo Agualusa (Angola)
  • Witi Ihimaera (New Zealand)
  • Anar (Azerbaijan) – sf!
  • Alek Popow (Bulgaria)
  • Kishwar Desai (India)
  • Manfredo Kempff Suarez (Bolivia)
  • Cory Doctorow (Canada) – his books are on Creative Commons licence (legally free download on his website).
  • Isabel Allende (Chile)
  • Miodrag Bulatović (Montenegro)

What will you read?

  1. I’m thinking to read either Blood Red Road by Moira Young (Canada) or one of Jhumpa Lahiri books (India). I know I have her books somewhere in my bookshelves but I cannot remember which one of her books I haven’t read yet 🙂

    So after I finish it and write my review, I have to go back to this post to let you know, right?
