A List of International Books – The Beginning

The first month of my international book project is coming to an end, so it’s time to compile the list of books so far. The list below is complete up until now. But it doesn’t represent the world yet. So, I need your help in filling in this list. Go to the original post and make your recommendation. And please share the post (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Reddit, StumbleUpon, reblog, or just write a post about it).

So, here is the list so far:

Canada

  • Fifth Business, by Robertson Davies
  • Alice Munro

  • Seven Brothers, by Aleksis Kivi
  • Under the North Star, by Väinö Linna
  • Unknown Soldiers, by Väinö Linna
