Un'impresa letteraria a tutto...mondo. Ann Morgan lettrice internazionale

Creato il 16 settembre 2013 da Mrsfrancis
"Nel 2012 il mondo è venuto a Londra per le Olimpiadi...ed io ne sono uscita per incontrare il mondo"
Mi sono imbattuta per caso in Ann Morgan, leggendo di sfuggita - ma poi sempre più interessata - la storia della sua impresa sul sito della BBC.
Ognuna di noi cerca di porsi un obiettivo di lettura all'inizio dell'anno - che poi regolarmente non riesce a raggiungere. Beh, questa giovane lettrice londinese cosmopolita ha deciso di porsi come goal leggere in un anno qualcosa di ognuno dei 196 paesi indipendenti del mondo.
Come ci spiega nel suo sito - creato apposta per condividere la sua impresa con i lettori di tutto il globo - non è stato facile portare a compimento ciò che si era proposta per la difficoltà di trovare romanzi o racconti di alcuni stati del mondo tradotti in inglese dalle lingue locali - ad esempio Comoros, Madagascar, Guinea-Bissau e Mozambico.
Tuttavia grazie ad impegno e consigli dei numerosissimi followers, Ann Morgan è riuscita nel suo incredibile progetto!
