#WomenReadWomen2019 (A Year Of Women Reading Women) Reading Progress

We are having A Year Of Women Reading Women this 2019 #WomenReadWomen2019.

I have technically pledged to read at least 25 women from 25 different countries this year. Fats has committed to reading 26 women authors from ten different countries. I know that I may have difficulties keeping track of who I have been reading, the country where the authors/illustrators are from, and the titles of the books I will be featuring this year, so I thought I might as well devote an entire page documenting my progress.

Please do take note that this list does not consist of all the books I read this year. To see that, please visit my Goodreads page. This table is meant to keep track of the books I featured here in GatheringBooks for our quarterly themes this year.

I will constantly be updating this table throughout the year, as and when new books fall into my hands and featured here for our #WomenReadWomen2019 reading theme.
