Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge Goals List

June 30, 2014 Books, TraveltheWorldinBooks 16


Welcome to the Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge where you choose your own reading and travel adventure! I’m teaming up with I’m Lost in Books and Savvy Working Gal for bringing you this reading challenge where you set your own goals and rules for what you would like to accomplish during your reading challenge. Finally, a no-stress, no-worries, kind of challenge that helps you expand your reading and cultural horizons.

Here are my goals for this challenge:

My goal is to read 50 books in 5 years that take place in countries other than the US (where I reside), both fiction and nonfiction. I will track the books I read on my Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge Google Map.

    I’m glad you didn’t limit this challenge because I’m absolutely horrible with challenges and then I just end up feeling bad for joining in the first place. :) Ok, so I’m joining in!

      So glad you will be joining us Aloi! I like flexible challenges, I am more likely to travel the world if I have 5 years to do it! :) The shorter challenges, I am more likely to not do as well since I am easily distracted by a book cover or book blogger events.

      I look forward to seeing what your goals are and where your book travels take you!

      Thanks April, would love to have you join us. Another participant, Diary of an Urban Housewife, said she was going to track hers on a pinterest map. I decided to do that too and make it a group board so participants can link up the reviews and pin them on the map :)
