Hi all! Want to increase my reading outside of just the UK & France, hence this challenge. I will go back and post to the beginning of 2021. I have added Holland as I read a historical fiction that took place in the then Holland. If a book is evenly divided 50/50 as to location, I will count it in both locations.

As I surmised, I 'm heavy on the UK...although this does contain 4 countries, all my reading has been, for the most part, in England.
