Round the World in 80 Books Challenge

Posted on January 31st, 2014

On Goodreads, I found the book club of my dreams:

So now I have a new reading challenge. Actually, there are lots of challenges to choose from on Round the World in 80 Books. It’s such a big group, it’s a bit confusing at first, but I think I picked a challenge that will work for me. It’s one of the more free and easy ones, called Circumnavigator. Mine involves reading my way around the globe from country to country and I’m trying to pick books with actual journeys in them and work my way from point A to point B through the books. I think it may get tough but I’ve figured out the first few moves in my itinerary.

I’m half wondering how long it’s going to take me to get stuck and how much cheating and back-tracking I’ll have to do…
