"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
This week's topic is: Favourite Places to Read
I know I've done these kinds of lists before and it's always the same, so I thought I'd rather go back to a list of books, this time with places, so
Cities in the Title
I first went and chose titles from Nobel Prize or German Peace Prize winners where I found quite a few, then I checked my list of Pulitzer, Booker and other prize winners where I didn't find any, so I thought I'll see whether there are other authors or books that deserve prizes.
I have cities in Egypt, France, Italy, Palestine, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine and the USA with authors from Egypt, Germany, Palestine, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and the USA.
Abulhawa, Susan "Mornings in Jenin" - 2010 (this author contributes to the understanding of Palestinians, she could get the Nobel Peace Prize)
