Books Around the World Challenge

I found a new challenge to add to my list of future challenges. This one came from a TED Talk that I watched today.

Ann Morgan took a look at her bookshelf and realized that she did not have the global view she thought she did. So, she took it upon herself to read one book from each country, all 196 of them, in one year.

While it was difficult to find translations, she did it, thanks to the help of people from all around the world.

See her full talk and a map of all the books Ann read here.

While I do not think I could ever read 196 books in a year, I think this would be a fantastic challenge that would allow me to experience a sliver of the world.

Looks like I am off to create a new Goodreads list!
