Around the World Challenge √

Around the World Reading Challenge 2016
Hosted by Crini at All About Books
Completed December 21, 2016 ~ I'm reading a really long book set in California and don't expect to have any new places to add before the year is done!  

The goal of the Around the World challenge is to visit as many different places in the world through books, especially places that are rather rare, and not the kind of settings you see in 95% of all the books you read. We’re are going to do this by creating a google map where every pin on the map stands for one book. The goal is to have as many pins as possible and they shouldn’t be very close to each other but spread all over.

(Note to self -- Adding places: click “Open in My Maps” and search for a place, then click on it on the map. The pop-up provides the option to add it to your map.  Tip: you can use different colors and symbols!)

The only mini challenge I'm doing is:  Visit a certain number of countries.  My goal: 5  Completed Feb. 2, 2016
