Oops, fell a bit behind and forgot to finish reading/update the list this past month. Have several in-progress books lying around that I need to finish up and post and that should kick up my progress in the next month or so. July was just so crazy!

Per the idea borrowed from Merle, the goal is to "travel the world" by reading one book set in every country of the world as listed below with preference given to books by a native author.

 

List format is also borrowed from Merle. :)
