In this challenge, you can "travel" the world through books. Please enter a number to challenge yourself to the number of countries you hope to visit by book in 2016.
Nonfiction books count, too, and the U.S.A. can be counted as one of the countries.
If a book takes place in more than one country, please limit the inclusion of the same book to no more than three countries. Later on, if you read another book set in one of those countries, you can update that entry to a different book. Every time you add a new country, please copy and paste your list at the top of the forum to receive your well-earned SparkPoints.

Just enter the number, followed by the countries, followed by the title and author:

(example)
My challenge: 10 countries
1. England-The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
2. France-The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
3. USA-To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
