2015 Challenge: Travel the World in Books

Travel-the-World-in-Books-Reading-Challenge

While perusing the hundreds of different reading groups on Goodreads recently, I found one that called out to me: Travel the World in Books, hosted by three bloggers, Tanya at Mom’s Small Victories, Becca at I’m Lost in Books, and Savvy Working Gal.

The Goal of this challenge is to: “Travel the world in books, of course! Expand your horizons and read books set in or written by authors from countries other than the one you live in. Visit as many different countries in books as you wish.” The Time Frame for participation is open ended, which suits me well. And, best of all, they are having a January read-a-long of Barbara Kingsolver’s, The Poisonwood Bible, a book I’ve long had on my TBR list. I couldn’t resist, so have signed on to participate in both the challenge and the January read-a-long. 

My own goal with joining this challenge is to expand my reading horizons, and enjoy some more of the world’s wonderful literature, which is something I love to do. I’ll compile a list of books, as I go, and will keep track of them under my Challenges header. I am looking forward to my reading travels this year!

    Good luck, Robin. I’m doing this one too… I’m reading books from African countries. I’ve read The Poisonwood Bible though, so won’t be joining in with the read-along. It’s *such* a good book. Enjoy.

    Thanks, Cath. I’m glad that you are doing this challenge, too. I like your idea of reading books from African countries. Reading about Africa has been a long-time interest for me, so I look forward to your thoughts and reviews of the books you are reading.
