Out of curiosity, what are you reading from Singapore?

I am dying to know what you are going to read from Bhutan and how you are going to find a Bhutanese book/author. I want to do this challenge but I'm not sure how to find stuff from a lot of countries!

I remember doing a report on Bhutan in like 5th grade - that country is the size of my thumbnail! At the time, their most lucrative export was postage stamps. They had a musical one! The things I remember from elementary school....

beastmomma - I'm making much slower progress on this personal challenge than I thought I would! I couldn't even finish the expanding horizons challenge!

olduvai and oakling- I have no idea what I am going to read for Bhutan or Singapore yet. Any suggestions?

Hi! Catherine Lim has written quite a few novels. This challenge is one I'd love to join, especially since I actually live in Asia and tend to read British/American writers, but like oakling, I'm not sure about finding books for quite a few countries!
