2014: A Year of Reading the World

I found the perfect Reading Challenge for the new year and that is A Year of Reading the World. This idea struck me when my Italian friend posted an article about writer Ann Morgan setting herself a challenge in 2012 to read a book from every country in the world in one year. While the article he posted was in Italian, I found the English version on BBC.

Taken into consideration all my other *commitments especially the major ones, I may not be able to cover all the countries in the world but I will read as many as I could possibly get my hands on.

I've created a page with the list of all countries of the world sourced from the U.S. Department of State, and to track my progress I will be using my existing database of Books Read.

With this, I'm ready to start bookpacking the world! Happy reading, my friends!
