Bout of Books 14: Fictional World Travel Challenge!

                     Bout of Books

 I am taking part in the fictional world travel challenge hosted by Between Library Shelves

The Goal of this challenge is to travel the world through the books we read. Starting from the top of the pile I can visit:

The Snack Thief = Sicily, Italy
My Neighbor Seki = Japan
Brick Lane = Starts in Bengali then moves to London, UK
The Toss of a Lemon = India
Baghdad Without a Map = Baghdad and other points in the Middle East
Un Lun Dun = Alternate London
Mozart's Sister = Austria  and other points of Europe

These are all on my books to be read pile and now that I have pulled them out I may dip into one or two over the course of the Read a Thon.  As I am in the United States these all take place anyplace but the USA.

After taking my picture I realized that I have 7 books rather than the  3-6 book range from the challenge... 2 are set in different versions of London - one real world London and the other an alternate earth London.
