The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Do you read books by authors from outside your country? Any book recommendations?
Also, if non-US/UK, could you name one author/book from your country?

To answer the first question, I read many, many, many books by British authors, and some Scottish, Irish, Australian, and Canadian authors. But, I don’t believe that I read many books outside of US/UK/Australian/Canadian authors, mostly because I’m not bi-lingual and opportunity doesn’t usually bring authors outside of English speaking countries to my attention.
That being said, there have been 2 Danish authors in the last year or so that I have read and reviewed. Jesper Stein with his hard-boiled mystery, Die For Me and Kenneth B. Andersen with his fantasy series, The Devil’s Apprentice. Both were very good and I can whole-heartedly recommend.
There may be more, and I just didn’t realize they were from a country outside the ones mentioned. Unless the book is part of a blog tour, I don’t always see author information aside from the name.
How about you? Do you read books by authors from outside your country? Any book recommendations?
