So cool Bethany! I'll be reading Greece and Switzerland soon--so they can eventually be checked (hopefully). :)

Trish said...

Oh ya--what do you have planned for 2009? My family is curious about my reading challenges and I think this would be a great one for them to join!

bethany said...

trish- I know, we have all read so much!!! It is really neat to see. I will do this again next year for sure. I will ask for suggestions at the end to see what needs improvement...but yes, it was just too fun for me to not do again!!! :)

beastmomma said...

That is very impressive! Does anyone know of good resources for finding authors from countries that have not been checked?

Peta said...

I'm really impressed with this achievement and wish I'd joined in! I've got a stash of books from Africa that I will hoard for next year in case you run it again.

Nymeth said...

Love the map! And I'm glad to hear you're hosting again next year, Bethany. I'd love to join again.

Ramya said...

hey bethany! this is absolutely cool!:) I am totally enjoying reading for your challenge and don't want to end it!:)I shall try to find books from the unchecked countries and read them.. i am curious to know a few things though.. which country is the most popular among the OT readers??:)

Ramya said...

and i am already in for next year challenge!:))

Ramya said...

bethany, you have an award waiting for you in my blog..stop by to pick it up!!:)

R-Lo said...

Hola Bethany,

I already have books from the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Uruguay, and Venezuela in my non-challenge TBR pile, so I could switch a read or two to one of those countries if nobody else volunteers. Still catching up in my OT travels after starting late, but I like the map and love the challenge! ¡Saludos!

I'll be able to help you check off Romania soon. :)
This is really cool!

Rachel said...

I picked the Faroes Islands for my first Orbis Terrarum pick and have just blogged about Peru with Mario Vargas Llosa's "The Storyteller". Next up, India!

Hi Bethany, I just finished Preeta Samarasan's book - Evening is the whole day. So this covers Malaysia. :)
