Reading International Books

I’ve talked about reading books from around the world before. You can go ahead and suggest more books from various countries. However, I discussed on YouTube about international books that I have read. It’s part of a new tag I started called the International Book Tag. Take a look.

So, I’d like to know about you. What books from various countries have you read? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. 1. Ancient Roman Empire
