There is just something about India in particular that has captured my heart. I went there for a month or so when I was in 7th grade (part of a semi-world tour with my family). I love the food, the people are so friendly, the sights were amazing. Yes, I had short hair so everyone thought I was a boy, but I still had a great time.
Given my love for India the South Asian Author Challenge was right up my ally. However, I wish I had taken advantage and read books about Pakistan and Sri Lanka for this challenge. The year isn't over yet though so that may still happen.
Thank you to S. Krishna for hosting such a great challenge and for letting me "steal" ideas from her challenge when I was preparing my Middle East Challenge.
I initially signed up to accomplish the lowest level of 3 books, but have read 7 so far.
