Orbis Terrarum Challenge 2009

I've decided to join in the Orbis Terrarum Challege 2009 which involves reading 10 books from 10 different countries between March 1 and December 31, 2009, and posting reviews of them here. It only makes sense, as I'm reading a fair number of books from different countries, anyway. Here is my tentative reading list, in no particular order:

March: Sweet and Sour Milk by Nuruddin Farah -- Somalia
April: A Month in the Country by J. L. Carr -- England
May: Akhenaten: Dweller in Truth by Naguib Mahfouz -- Egypt
June: Iceland's Bell by Halldor Laxness -- Iceland
July: Spring Torrents by Ivan Turgenev -- Russia
August: Mr. Muo's Travelling Couch by Dai Sijie -- China
September: Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter by Mario Vargas Llosa -- Peru
October: The Leopard by Giuseppe di Lampedusa -- Italy
November: A Woman in Jersualem by Yehoshua -- Israel
December: A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines -- U. S.
