A three-way tie so far and not too long to go. I wonder if there will be any last-minute vote to break it.

Oh, I completely agree, about Ireland especially. But on this regard I feel that what's done is done (I especially don't want to work on that map again! ). Besides, it will take years to run through these regions, and in that time any member could decide to use a rotating nomination to showcase a particular culture or area if so inclined, such as Bookpossum did.

It's for this reason that I think the region could be very interesting. Bookpossum just made an entire month of Australia only and that's just one of the countries included in the South Pacific region. And don't forget, the South Pacific also happens to include the literary mecca of Antarctica!

Oh, sounds interesting!
