I was really excited when I found this challenge and signed up for the Easy Challenge, which is one book from each continent. As you can see, I read a lot of books for most of the areas of the world, but did best with Africa and Asia! Doing this post was a great process for me since it meant going back through the past year's posts to see what fit where. I really did a lot of international reading!
What's even more amazing is that with all this reading, I still only managed to do the Easy Challenge since I only read one book from Australasia!
