Well, I may be a little off from "new year, new topic" and maybe I didn't do so well last year, but I'm back, in March of 2012 with a new mission that I've been subconsciously working on.... reading books from around the globe. The first book of this topic was "Memoirs of a Geisha." Who would've guessed that I didn't read that when it was so popular? But alas, my roommate had it sitting on our shelf- voila. I still think that Lisa See has written the best Chinese literature ("Peony in Love" being my favorite). Second, I hit up the Carribean with "The Pirate's Daughter." Meh. Now, I'm in the middle of a surprising novel from the perspective of a servant in India, "White Tiger." I'll let you know how it goes- I'm almost done! And then I'll get a map that I can cross off. The question is, how in depth should I get on the map? Is regional good enough? Will a country-by-country reading exploration be too hard to find books?
