      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

Rob's Round the World reading.....by snail

Recommended Posts

Seeing there are several members having a go at this , I thought I'd see how far I can get. The rules i'm following are the author's place of birth, NOT their country of residence counts.

I've been holding fire before commenting so you could list all the countries. If this post is in the way let one of us know and we can insert a post for you above. :D

 

LOL @ your thread title - mine's going to be by snail too! :smile2:

 

And you've just reminded me that I haven't added Japan - same book as you - so thanks!

Your map is looking good. I must put Lolita further up the reading pile so I can colour a big bit in red! :)
