* A Year of Reading the World
I came across this article today on my facebook page. This girl spent the last year reading a book from every country around the world...that's 196 books! You can visit her blog where she has posted about each book and also has a list of recommendations that were given to her.
I love these types of challenges!!! Not only do they promote reading, but, like book clubs, it's a great opportunity to pick up books that I wouldn't normally read. I didn't get a chance to look too much at the list, but she has some great books on it. What a great way to read and learn about all of the different cultures around the world! I can't wait to read her book "Reading the World: Postcards from my Bookshelf" when it comes out in 2015.
