Name a book (or books) from a country other than your own that you love. Or aren’t there any?
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
Good question! I have to say that I’m a Canadian with a love for American work. Feel free to look over my full response and browse my blog at http://coffeetalereviews.blogspot.com/
Good question, I look forward to seeing everyone else’s response (and getting ideas)!
Okay too early for this one, finally! Anyway here’s my BTT for this week.
Oh dear, my answer is too long. Therefore, I would just leave you a link to my actual response. http://bit.ly/da7RSd
I really enjoyed thinking and writing about these books.
Here’s my answer! Nice question!
That’s an easy one for me … almost all of my books come from another country. LOL.
Just to name one series here. Harry Potter. 🙂
Fun question. Should be some good answers to this one. Here’s mine:
I answered an older question, as I –once again– didn’t have an answer for the current one.

Interesting question! Here’s my response for this week: http://www.rulethewaves.net/blog/?p=1809
There are many!
Here’s my link: http://islandofvoices.blogspot.com/2010/10/booking-through-thursday-foreign.html
I don’t really read many foreign books actually. I like wine from Germany… but I don’t know about their literature. 🙂 If anyone’s interested I started a new meme today called What Were They Thinking? Over at The Crowded Leaf. Stop on by!
Hello! My answer is here : http://pandabox33.wordpress.com/2010/10/21/booking-through-thursday-foreign/

None of my favorite writers come from my country.
A great question! My answer is here: http://thecaffeinateddivareads.multifacetedmama.com/?p=350! Thank you!
Only one came to mind. Here is my BTT
While several came to mind. One definitely stood out. My list is Here
Don’t have time to post today. I won’t count all the British, Australian, Canadian, etc. literature I have. So other languages would have to be Gabriel Garcia Marquez, but that’s probably everyone’s favorite. Well, other than the Russians…
I like a lot of foreign authors. I try to cut down my list of books 🙂
i’ve got a tidy list of non-Anglo titles: http://tinyurl.com/24dzepd
Great question! I’m a Canadian with a love for American fiction…. read all of my response at http://www.coffeetalereviews.blogspot.com
Almost all my favourite books are foreign: http://turn-of-the-page.blogspot.com/2010/10/booking-through-thursday-foreign.html
Sad to say, in my case, it’s the opposite. I can barely name a book from my country that I like, but I can give you at least twenty books that are from another country that I keep coming back to. There are a lot of great writers here, but the problem is the topics they write about are too depressing or ones I’m not into, or their writing style is not something that entices me to read.
Hmm. A topic I hope to expound on. 🙂
Loved this weeks question! Find out my answer here 🙂 http://jessheartsbooks.blogspot.com/2010/10/booking-through-thursday.html
It’s been awhile since I did a BTT! Here’s my answer:
There are certainly a few that I love.
my top 5 favs are all from another country 🙂
Here’s mine: Reading the Paranormal

Great question; my response: http://sheeryhall.blogspot.com/2010/10/booking-through-thursday-books-from.html
Mine is up! IT’s one of my very favorite books. I adore it.
Here’s Mine! I had quite a few to mention.
What a great question! I love exploring new places through books.
I read a lot of translated fiction. My full answer is up.
Cool question! Here’s mine.
I have a few and since I am Canadian I decided to list books outside of the US and Canada to really make it foreign!!
Here is my answer:
[…] week’s Booking Through Thursday prompt asks participants to contemplate foreign books: “Name a book (or books) from a country […]
Nice to get back to doing this, finally!
Here is my post:
Coffee & Literature (Booking Through Thursday)
Mine’s over here!
Uh…my favorite “foreign” authors all wrote poetry and/or plays. Do those count?
It’s not quite Thursday anymore in my timezone, but I’ve still given my answer here: http://thefreshchuff.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/booking-through-thursday/
Here is mine:
Great question, you can find my answer here.
This is my first time participating in a meme. I hope you enjoy my post!
My answer is here :
I absolutely must be forgetting some:
I didn’t quite answer this question, but rather asked why someone _wouldn’t_ read novels from other countries. I also recommended some non-American and non-English authors for readers to try 🙂
I know its late but this is such a good question. I have several favorites. Check out my full response at http://pageflippinaddict.wordpress.com/2010/10/26/booking-through-thursday-foreign/
Hello all, I’m only like a week late leaving this link but what’s new really 😛
Anyway, HERE it is 🙂
My answer is here.
I’m not going to include books from predominantly English-speaking places, since that feels like cheating.
Two come to mind.
Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon by Jorge Amado and
Smila’s Sense of Snow by Peter Hoeg
