That is very impressive. I think it would take me at least 20 years to read one book from every country in Africa.

beastmomma - this is part of my long-term reading across borders challenge (the link is on my sidebar). I definitely don't plan on reading books from all of these countries in one year!!!

I just looked at the sidebar and it all makes sense now. Sorry for the confusion :) I am VERY impressed with how many challenges and book related events you are doing.
