Reading Geographically

There’s a great website, Read the World, that recommends books to readers based on the book’s geographical setting. I love this approach to reading, since my own novel is set in the exotic locale of a Caribbean island. So I’ve decided to create a page here on Reading Recommendations dedicated to listing books and their authors, according to their geographic location, with links to my recommendations of them since Nov. 2013.
