How many different books set in places around the globe can we name? List one book, then someone lists another one. Same poster cannot post twice in a row. You cannot post the same country twice in a row. In other words, if the first country is America, the second country must be any country other than America. And please, do not list continents or cities. List by country.

Format: Book title, author- country
