WorldBookProject – What’s coming and what’s missing

wbp  On the picture are some of the titles which I hope to read in the coming weeks. On my e-reader, I have started with Cameroon, and Brazil, Haiti, Vatican, Antarctica and Kazakhstan are ready to go.

I’m still looking for suggestions for the following places:

Central African Republic, Comoros, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bisseau, Honduras, Maldives, Mauritania, Monaco, Nauru, Niger, Palau, Panama, Moldova, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, San Marino, Sao Tome and Principe, Singapore, South Sudan, Tajikistan, Timor Leste, Turkmenistan, Tuvalu, UAE, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, Akrotiri and Dhekelia, French Guyana, French Polynesia, Kurdistan, Mayotte, Netherland Antilles, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, Pitcairn Island, Reunion.

Please leave a comment if you know of a good book by an author from one of these places. Thanks!

  1. Hello from one world reader to another! I enjoyed your list very much and will be taking quite a few suggestions from it in time.

    In terms of suggestions, I’ve got a couple. For Equatorial Guinea, I can highly recommend ‘By Night The Mountain Burns’ by Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel, translated by Jethro Soutar and published (at least in the UK) by And Other Stories. For Uzbekistan, I’ve very much enjoyed what I’ve read so far by Hamid Ismailov, and ‘The Devil’s Dance’ (translated by Donald Rayfield) has just been published by Tilted Axis Press. I also enjoyed ‘There Was A Country’, a collection of short pieces by writers from South Sudan, although it’s a little slip of a thing it still makes you think!

    I’ve got stuff upcoming on my list for Honduras, Moldova and Singapore, so I’ll report back if they’re any good. Happy reading!

    • Hello to you too! Thanks a lot for your suggestions – I’ll definitely look into Equ.Guinea and South Sudan. At the moment, a friend of mine is in Uzbekistan, and she said she’d try to get me something. If that doesn’t work out, Ismailov sounds good too.
      Yesterday, I came across a book by a Singaporean author just by chance: Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal, and got it as an audiobook. Happy reading to you too :). Kristina
