My reading project list

My reading list is going to be the following one, based on the UN member state-list to make it easy to begin with. I know that there are some places in the world that e.g. declared independence but aren’t officially a state, but I will stick to the official ones for a start as I will definitely be busy with them for a while, though I might actually update the list, regarding on what I might think is important. The list will be in alphabetical order and I will use the names of the states as written by the UN.

I will mark books I already have with a *, books I already read will be a link to the original post. All other books will still be needed to be bought  or borrowed. I will, if possible, add the original book title in gaps in case it differs from the translation I am reading and give the English title as well.
