Orbis Terrarum Finished!

Just in the nick of time, I finished my 9 books by 9 different authors from 9 different countries.  
Here's my list:

  1. The Book Thief - Australia
  2. The Miracle at Speedy Motors - Scotland/Zimbabwe
  3. The Other Boleyn Girl - England/Kenya
  4. Unaccustomed Earth - United States/England
  5. A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian - Germany/Ukraine/England
  6. Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress - China/France
  7. Persepolis 2 - Iran/France
  8. How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents - Dominican Republic/United States
  9. P.S., I Love You - Ireland
Thank you Bethany for hosting.  I look forward to next year (and starting a little earlier this time!).

1.) What did you like about the challenge?  I liked that it forced me to live a little outside my bubble.  It also got me to read books I've had on my list for a long time.
2.) What would you like to see change for next year? Something has to change?
3.) About the rules, or the non-existent rules...did you like that? Loved the non-existent rules.  Makes them so much easier to follow.  :)
4.) Are you going to join us next year? Yep!
5.) Pretty please give me any suggestions for changes, the betterment of the challenge, or just anything that you would like to see changed for next year.  Really bethany, it was great!
6.) Would you like the challenge to be more involved? What if we read books together sometimes? Would that interest you?  I would be interested in a group read.  Maybe not every book, but if people wanted to join in a group read from time to time, it might be fun.  
7.) would you be interested in helping somehow next year? How would you like to help?  I would be happy to help.  Maybe with prizes?

Congratulations on finishing your challenge. I've signed up for 2, and I'm not doing great on either one of them.

Good job. I did this one too and it's one of my favourite challenges. So glad you liked The Book Thief. That's the only one I've read from your list. But there's always next year.
