I, like many, can not afford to travel around the world quite so much as I’d like to. That’s okay though, because I have books!
For the past 3 or 4 years, I’ve been veeery slooowly working my way through a challenge that I call Around the World in 80 Books. The title is pretty self-explanatory, I am trying to read my way through countries around the world. It’s not a particularly time-sensitive challenge, clearly, and most books that I read don’t qualify, so all these years later, I’ve only reached 35 countries – but hey, that’s 35 countries that I’ve now “travelled” to! (The map shows 34, but that’s because Tibet is not currently recognized as an autonomous country. Someday.)
