Reading Around the World at UC Libraries

Books from many countries of world in the English translation from UC Libraries' collections.

About this Guide

Cover of the book "The World Between Two Covers"The idea of this Guide came from UC International. It is based on the list A Year of Reading Around the World compiled by Ann Morgan, a freelance writer who challenged herself to read a work from each of the countries of the world in the year of London Olympics. Her year of reading resulted in the book published in the United States under the title The World Between Two Covers.

Just like the original list, this Guide features books in the English translation to maximize the number of people who can read them. We have modified the list to include titles available at UC Libraries or through OhioLINK. Working on the Guide motivated us to review and expand our collection of titles by authors from various countries. We hope that the Guide will grow thanks to your suggestions.

Please suggest your favorite international titles to be included in this Guide.
