The Twelve Country Challenge

It’s simple. Read twelve books, January to December, written by twelve people, each belonging to a different country. If I do that, I might be able to skip diversity training….. This does not include English or American writers.

Here goes:

  1. Orhan Pamuk – The White Castle (Turkey)
  2. Mohsin Hamid – Moth Smoke (Pakistan)
  3. Rohinton Mistry – Such A Long Journey (India)
  4. Haruki Murakami – Norwegian Wood (Japan)
  5. Gyorgy Dragoman – The White King (Hungary)
  6. Milan Kundera – The Book of Laughter & Forgetting (Czechoslovakia)
  7. Bernhard Schlink – Homecoming (Germany)
  8. Ann Holm – I Am David (Denmark)
  9. Carlos Ruiz Zafón – The Shadow of the Wind (Spain)
  10. Gabriel Garcia Marquez – News Of A Kidnapping (Columbia)
  11. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – Half of a Yellow Sun (Nigeria)
  12. Lloyd Jones – The Book Of Fame (New Zealand)
  13. Antoine De Saint-Exupery – The Little Prince (France)

    Hey you’re almost done! Congrats. Good luck with JM Coetzee, he’s not my cup of tea at all.
