Orbis Terrarum Challenge

Orbis Terrarum means 'the whole world' and is the title of a challenge hosted by B&b ex libris, who says:

- The Orbis Terrarum Challenge begins April 1 2008 (you are welcome to join later) Through December 20th 2008.
- For the challenge each reader is to choose 9 books (for the 9 months).
-Each book must be by an author from a different nation in our world.

Completed: ALL as of 17 November 2008 (read my wrap-up post here)

My list is made up of books I'm already reading anyway, so it's an easy one for me to join:

7. The Vanishing by Tim Krabbe (The Netherlands)

I eyed this one up, too, but then opted for Joy's "Non-Fiction Five Challenge". This one looks great though!

Oh these are great choices. I have read The Book Thief and Perfume. Both of those are favorites of mine. I hope you'll enjoy them.
I still need to decide what my books will be. So fun to come up with the lists right? :)

Iliana - yep, making the list is definitely part of the fun! Have fun with yours!
