Ultimate Travel Reading List

When my friend Maryam sent me the A Year of Reading the World blog a couple weeks ago, my jaw dropped! I was so inspired by this woman. She read nearly 200 books in one year?!?! And they’re from or about every country in the world? That is so awesome. She literally read her way around the globe. How much she must have learned from reading about all those places. For those who can’t necessarily afford to travel around the world, this would be a great way to still get that cultural connection with countries everywhere.

I think I read like 20 books this past year…there’s no way I could ever read 200 books! But when I shared this with a couple travel obsessed friends, we devised a plan to attempt this goal: making a book club! I’m a lot slower reader than the other two girls, so they’ll probably read through quite a few more than me. But I’m going to try and keep up! We don’t know quite where we’re going to start, but I’m excited to start this challenge. It’ll probably take me like 5 years to read them all, but what an inspiring way to keep inspired about traveling!

One thought

  1. I also looked at the blog mentioned above. Amazing. I don’t know how she managed to read so much and still travel. I also travelled around the world for 10 months, but I would not have had the time to read so many books in between visiting sights and meeting so many interesting people. I managed to read quite a few, some of course relevant to the country I was travelling at the time, but I got nowhere close to 200.
    A book club with friends sounds like a great idea to keep up reading and talk about the books with someone as well!
