Hello and happy reading for day 4 of our Travel the World in Books Readathon. We hope your reading travels have been fun and relaxing. No pressure here in our readathon, read what you can, when you can and thoroughly enjoy the next week and a half.
If you haven’t heard, our readathon goal is quite simple…to get you reading more about other countries and cultures than your own. It’s both a learning opportunity and a great excuse to cozy up with a good book and travel to places you might not otherwise be able to visit!
Today, we have author Angela Correll guest posting over at Guiltless Reading. Angela is the author of Grounded, a contemporary women’s fiction about a flight attendant who is forced to leave her jet setting lifestyle and head back home to her Kentucky farm. A book that sounds like it’s best paired with some good ole Southern sweet tea and sittin’ on the porch, my favorite! Head over to Guiltless Reading to see what Angela has to say and enter to win a special giveaway!
Daily Discussion Posts
This year we want to get YOU talking about your favorite books, authors, genres, and characters. Every day we’ll have a different topic of discussion. You can write a new blog post, link up a couple of old posts that are pertinent to the topic and/or leave comments answering our questions. Linkups will be open through 11/7/15 ( a week after the readathon ends to give you plenty of time to write a new post if you want).
Today’s discussion topic: Books or favorite authors from Africa or Asia
