  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! 🙂


  2. 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.
