Brian's Around the World Marathon


Recommended Posts

Another book ticked off the list today, Broken April by Ismail Kadare for Albania. I really enjoyed this book and its fantastic that a challenge like this forces me to read thing that I would have otherwise missed.


My review can be found HERE on my book log thread.

Well done, Brian.  :)


I've let this challenge slide a bit recently - but I'm not worrying about it!


Me too, I don't actively look for authors from different countries but if they come along I try to remember to tick them off the list.
