Continental Challenge Update

Earlier this month I posted about one of my challenges for next year, a continental challenge where I read one book from each continent over the course of the year. At the time I hadn’t finalised my list. Having carried out some more research I have selected all my books for the challenge.

North America – Stoner by John Williams


Asia – Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

South America – In the Time of Butterflies by Julia Alvarez

Australasia/Oceania – The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
