Orbis Terrarum Completed Books

I am going to update the map of completed countries for the Orbis Terrarum Challenge.
Make sure you add any of the books that you have read and are not currently up, onto the Links page.

YAY!!! You all are doing so great. Keep up the reading. We have two months to go!!! I am going to host this again next year. Be sure to let me know if you have any suggestions.

One thing I am still not clear on is whether books that are written by folks who are multi-cultural or take place in two places like Korea and the United States count for the challenge. What if a book is written about life in Japan by an author who is American? What if the author was born in one country and resides in another?

If you could clarify this point, it would make finishing the challenge easier and next year's challenge more fun. Thanks again for being a FANTASTIC host!!!

beastmomma- It should be country the author is from. I know in many cases the author has several countries and it is hard to figure out....then just pick whichever one of the two you want.

Does that explain it?

I have used Wikipedia, and they usually have the author with a little bio in the right hand corner, most of the time the author's nationality is written there.

Let me know if you have any more questions!!!

Ohhhhh--can't wait to see the map, Bethany! I've kind of fallen off track the past month with all of my challenges but I hope to be globetrotting again soon!!
