For anyone who'd like some literary reading while sheltering in place this summer, David Damrosch has set up a website under the title "Around the World in 80 Books."

For the next sixteen weeks, through August 31, he'll be posting on one book per day, every Monday through Friday, focusing each week on a set of books associated with sixteen memorable locales.

The series is already circulating out into the world, with translations under way into Arabic, Chinese, German, Romanian, Turkish, and Ukrainian.
