Around the World in 12 Books Challenge 2015

Around the World in 12 Books Challenge 2015 post

around the world 2015
It’s a simple enough challenge that can fit into your usual reading pattern, or motivate you to try something out of your comfort zone. The idea is that the setting in books read for this challenge should be important, interesting, enlightening, educational etc. That is to say, what did you learn about the country/place from reading this book?
The rules are simple, and you can join in any time throughout the year.  There are several levels and I decided to go for the Seasoned Traveller again. Didn't quite make it last year, but hopefully this year I will. 
Seasoned Traveller 2015
Level 4: The Seasoned Traveller
– The Seasoned Traveller doesn’t do anything by half-measures: they go the whole hog and the more obscure the better!
– Read 12 books over the course of the year, each set in a DIFFERENT country
– Books selected should include ones set in Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia+New Zealand, North America and South America. The Middle East should be considered too
– You do not need to plan ahead but it might help you keep on track
– No re-reads
– Any genre is okay (including non-fiction) BUT books MUST be set in a specific country or region with a noticeable attention to the location or environment; some genre books won’t be much use for this challenge
