I knew from the beginning it would be a real challenge, because there are several countries with only one or two books and authors. I was lucky enough to find quite a few of these books along the way, but as I feared, the small island countries in the Pacific would create some problems. They did.
I still need to read a book from Kiribati, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, Salomon Islands, Nauru and the small African country Sao Tome and Principe. Sao Tome and Principe does not seem to have a single book translated into the English, so I will have to read the book in Portuguese, whenever I get ahold of a book.
I am looking for the following books:
Kiribati – Waa in Storms or On Eitei’s Wings by Teweiariki Teaero
Nauru – Stories from Nauru or Legends, Traditions, and Tales of Nauru
Salomon Island – The Alternative by John Saunana
Sao Tome and Principe – Book by Olinda Beja
Tuvalu – Tuvalu, a History by Simati Faaniu
Vanuatu – Laef Blong Mi, From Village to Nation by Sethy Regenvanu
I enjoyed this challenge, and I have decided to post some blog posts about books I read from around the world. I will also look into other areas and regions, like autonomous places like Greenland, Gibraltar, and Reunion Islands. Let’s see how it goes!
