  1. Oh good job! I've tried this challenge before and have had trouble hitting the more obscure countries book-wise. You've targeted countries well and even with a few children's books. Brava! :-)

    1. Thank you! I read a few others but didn't list them as they were either from the same country or by the same author & then I realised that I could add Augustine, which I hadn't thought of until I was making the list above.

  2. Congratulations on completing this.

    This is an impressive list of books. May your 2017 reading plans be just as fruitful.
