  16. Hi, I just stumbled upon this… is it too late to join in? I see that above you said that we can count in the books we’ve read earlier in the year which leaves me at this moment 3 continents short, I think. Which I’m sure I can manage…
    It’s a real wake up call actually to realise that I’m mostly focused on American & European literature, I never thought about it before!
    My blog is called:
    Waterblogged; Dry Thoughts on Damp Books
    And the link is:

    Please let me know if it’s okay to join.
