Borderless Books from Borders

Yesterday we went to Borders for their next-to-last-day going-out-of-business sale. Seeing as how everything was 90% off and we both like to read, we bought 34 books for $54.72, saving $540! Now to go spend that $540 we just saved! (Just kidding!)
The novels and memoirs I picked out shared a common theme: they are from all over! Here are some of the places in which these books take place:
  • Trinidad
  • Brazil
  • France
  • Afghanistan
  • Iran
  • Taiwan
  • Ireland
