Around the World For A Good Book:

I’ve neglected to work on my Around the World For A Good Book project the past few years, so for 2014, in honor of the FIFA World Cup, I’m going to try to complete a book for all the nations participating. There are thirteen gaps to fill in, not including the United States which is well represented in my reading history.
