World literature tour

Still need a New Year’s Resolution for 2012?  How about undertaking a World Literature Tour? UK’s Guardian newspaper blogged a “world literature tour” throughout 2011. Each tour “stop” begins with a blog post about the country’s literary landscape. Subsequently, Guardian readers participated by offering reading suggestions and reviews. These recommendations are summarized in a second post on each country. The recommendations are usually a mix of native authors in translation as well as English language books about the country of interest.

All suggested books are listed in spreadsheets for easy downloading, so take advantage of these recommendations if you are looking for international reading for general audiences.

The World Literature Tour page is available here.
