2011 Global Reading Challenge

I am joining the 2011 Global Reading Challenge this year.  I am joining at the EASY level, which means 7 books, one from each continent.  As a geography teacher, this challenge is right up my alley. 

The Easy Challenge

Read one novel from each of these continents in the course of 2011:

North America
South America (please include Central America where it is most convenient for you)
The Seventh Continent (here you can either choose Antarctica or your own ´seventh´ setting, eg the sea, the space, a supernatural/paranormal world, history, the future – you name it).

From your own continent: try to find a country, state or author that is new to you.

I have already selected some of the books I want to read.
Africa - Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
Asia - Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
Australasia -
Europe - The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
North America -
South America - The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
The Seventh Continent -
