Around the World in 80 Books Reading Challenge

I saw Bev @ My Reader's Block doing this. I am signing up too for the Around the World in 80 Books Reading Challenge.

I'm off on a voyage of discovery as I travel around the world through the books that I read.

My rules for this challenge are:
I have five years to complete my journey. My start date is October 1, 2012 {but you can join this challenge any time} and my end date will be September 30, 2017. I am going to count books that I started from October 1 for this challenge.
I'm choosing my books that take place in a particular country {since one of my primary goals is to learn about other countries} therefor it does not matter to me what country the author is from. If a book takes place in multiple countries then I will count it towards the country that it is mostly set in.

1. The man in the picture by Susan Hill (Italy)(1/10/12)
