This is amazing and inspiring. I noticed that the map doesn't signify having read a book in Saudi Arabia, although maybe because it's a "wild card," it doesn't count in the continents' goal?
I'm only aiming for the Medium level of 2 books from each of 6 continents and have one from Asia and one from South America to go. However, have read books from 16 countries, which is a first.
The challenges are great.
Thanks for the eagle eyes Kathy. Somehow I left Saudi Arabia off my list when I generated the map. It is there now,
Thanks back. I'm cursed with the proofreading gene, I think.
But I have liked the maps posted of this and other websites of the global book challenge and notice any new countries.
